No recipe image available.Recipe for smothered steak with spicy gravy was submitted by Lloyd Rushing of Texas City, Texas USA.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 1/2 to 3 pounds round steak, trimmed of fat
1 1/2 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (depending on how much steak is being cooked)
1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 1/3 cups buttermilk

10 tablespoons drippings from frying steak
10 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 (10-ounce) can RoTel brand tomatoes (tomatoes with green chiles)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cut steak into serving pieces. Place buttermilk in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix flour, garlic powder, and black pepper in a paper bag. Put one steak at a time in the bag and coat with flour, dip into the buttermilk, draining off the excess and then coat with flour again.
  3. In a deep skillet, fry the steak until brown in about 1/2-inch of vegetable oil. Set steak aside until gravy is made.
  4. For Gravy: Heat oil and add flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Stir constantly until flour is browned. Add onions and RoTel tomatoes, stirring constantly; then add 1 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil, stirring continuously.
  5. As gravy thickens, continue to thin with water until it is as thin as you like it. Then, place steak in gravy, cover, and place in 350°F (175°C) oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Steak will be very tender and you will have plenty of delicious gravy for biscuits, rolls, or mashed potatoes.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
