Recipe: Country-Style Minute Steak w/ Pan Gravy
Author: Robin Meadows West
  • 2 to 4 minute steaks
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder (depending on your preference)
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, black pepper, seasoned salt, and garlic powder together. Set aside 3 TB of the seasoned flour to use in the pan gravy.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dredge the steaks through the seasoned flour and brown both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Place the steaks, in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
  3. Mix the previously set aside seasoned flour into the beef stock and stir until smooth. Pour broth over the steaks, cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake until the meat is tender and gravy has thickened – about 2 hours.
  4. Enjoy with mashed potatoes, vegetables, and buttered bread for a great southern dinner.
