Barbecued Round Steak Recipe

Barbecued Round Steak Recipe

THIS RECIPE came from a 1950s television program called Kay's Kitchen. I gave it a try, and my family gave it rave reviews. It makes a colorful entree served with fresh green beans...or try French fries - the sauce is great for dipping! -Ray Sholes, Butler, Pennsylvania

"I will definitely make this again to use up the round steak I have in the freezer. Loved the sauce. This recipe was very easy to put together. Our little girls actually asked for more meat during our meal. That rarely happens."

"This recipe was submitted by my beloved father, who passed away March 1, 1993, one day before I turned 30. I GOOGLED Ray Sholes just to see if anything would come up, and here it was. What a fond memory! Thank you! By the way, the sauce can also be used with chipped ham for the best barbequed ham sandwiches ever!
