I was really glad to find this recipe since it's a great way to use round steak and it picks up fabulous flavor from one of my favorite herbs - tarragon. I am a homemaker with three children and enjoy cooking tasty dinners like this one for my family.

This down-home recipe reminds me of my mother, who was raised in the South. It calls for cubed steak instead of round steak, so there's no need to pound the meat. I just dip and coat the beef, then cook it in my cast-iron skillet.

I once knew a nun who cooked the best marinated steaks. I found this recipe in my quest to fix steaks as good as hers. This delicious versatile meat makes a special holiday main dish or a super camping supper.

Some days I have little time to make a hearty meal for my "meat-and-potatoes" family. That's why I appreciate this juicy peppery steak. It has a down-home taste and requires no more than minutes to put together!
I've been serving this recipe to family and friends for 20 years and very seldom do I have any leftovers. We try to keep the house cool, so we grill out often. I get most of the herbs in this recipe from my son's garden.
Meet the Cook: I've enjoyed cooking ever since I was very young. This recipe's one I spotted in a local hospital auxiliary cookbook. When I gave it a try, my husband loved it, and I have had lots of compliments from the guests I've served it to, too.
Our children are 4 and 3. Calvin is a logger, but besides we're seeing what our luck's like in raising thoroughbred horses here on our 160-acre farm.
