When our family gets together, they often ask me to prepare this main course. They love its down-home flavor.—Howard Haug, Hewitt, Texas


  • 2 pounds beef top round steak, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup beef broth


  1. Pound steak to tenderize; cut into serving-size pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Dust with flour. Combine milk and egg; dip meat into egg mixture and back into flour.
  2. In a large skillet, brown meat on both sides in oil. Place onion in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Place meat over onion. Pour broth over all. Cover tightly and bake at 350° for 1-1/2 hours. Uncover; bake 20 minutes longer.
