Instructions Checklist

  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown steaks on each side, then pour in just enough water to cover. Place a lid on the pan and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes over medium-low heat. Spoon some of the liquid into a cup or small bowl and mix with flour until smooth. Return to the pan and simmer until gravy has thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Combine the rice and 4 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.

  • To serve, spoon rice onto plates. Top with steak and gravy then top with lima bean sauce.

For a family on budget this is actually a pretty good recipe. It seemed a littel strange to me at first but it turned out pretty darn good. I did season the steaks with pepper and garlic salt before I browned them. ALso instead of adding water to teh steaks to cook I used beef broth. I do think that they could cook for about 45 extra minutes...about 1 1/2 hours total. Read More

This is a good recipe but we found it to be a little bland. Don't get me wrong It's a pretty hearty dish for a family on a buget. We just like alot of flavor. I spiced it up with thyme basil oregano and garlic. Next time I make this I will sautee an onion and garlic with the steak. I also would replaced half of the rice water with beef or chicken broth for added flavor. All in all this is an easy dish to make. Read More
