"This is one of my very favorite recipes," writes Vicky Reinhold from her ranch in Sturgis, South Dakota. "I've made it countless times over the 45 years I've been married. Our children always asked for it on their birthdays, and it has a wonderful rich flavor...guess that's why we call it 'super'!"


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-1/2 pounds beef top round steak (about 1 inch thick), cut into serving-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, optional


  1. In a large resealable container, combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add beef, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Remove steak from container; flatten to 3/4-in. thickness.
  2. In a large skillet, brown steak on both sides in oil over medium-high heat. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, tomato soup, onion, bay leaf, marjoram, thyme, paprika, cloves if desired and remaining salt; pour over beef.
  3. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until meat is tender, 1-1/4-1-3/4 hours. Discard bay leaf.
