Gayle’s Country-Style Steak


Gayle's Country-Style Steak

from Cheap. Fast. Good.

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs. round steak
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix


1. Place flour, salt and pepper in medium-size brown paper bag. Fold top over to close and shake to mix.

2. Heat oil in extra-deep 12" skillet over medium heat.

3. While oil is heating, trim any excess fat from steak and cut into 3-4" wide pieces. Place steak pieces in bag and shake vigorously to coat well.

4. Place steak in skillet and cook each side until meat is lightly browned around edges, about 4-5 minutes. 

5.While steak cooks, prepare gravy mix with whisk.

6. When steak is lightly browned on both sides, pour gravy over it. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until steak falls apart when pierced with fork, about 1-1 1/2 hours. If gravy gets too thick, just add water.

7. Serve immediately.
