Directions

  1. Stir flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl. Sprinkle pieces of steak with flour mixture and pound the flour mixture into the meat with a meat mallet or the edge of a sturdy plate.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the floured beef in the hot oil until browned on both sides, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to low, pour in water, cover skillet, and simmer beef until tender, about 1 hour. Add more water to the skillet if needed to prevent burning.
  3. Mix diced tomatoes, green bell pepper, onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a bowl. Pour tomato mixture over beef, bring to a simmer, and cook until sauce has thickened, about 30 more minutes.

This recipe was delicious. I found that the first time i made it, there was not enough sauce for the noodles. So, the second time i doubled up on the tomatoes and spices - perfect!!

This was great and very much like my Mothers delicious creation, but I dont think she used a recipe. She had to feed 10 of us so she was fairly creative with amounts and they varied. I served it with mashed potatoes and it too was delicious. A definite fave for a traditional fall dinner.
