Smothered Steak

Smothered Steak

2 pounds round steak
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope beefy onion soup mix
1 can beef broth
1 cup water

In skillet, or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute onion until translucent; remove and set aside.

In same skillet, saute round steak until browned.

Meanwhile, stir together mushroom soup, onion soup mix, beef broth and 1 cup water until blended; add onion and pour over browned meat. Reduce heat, cover with tight fitting lid, and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until beef is fork tender, or for Dutch oven, cover and cook in preheated 350 degree F oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Smotherd chicken is made exactly the same way just replace the beef seasonings and broth with chicken ones. Both taste pretty good to me.
