Onion Chuck Steak
Boneless chuck steak I usually have the meat market cut me 8 oz

Onion soup mix 2 packages.
Dredge steaks in flour with salt & pepper

Gravy from cafe which is beef broth from beef roast, beef stock and
chicken stock .Thickened with corn starch.
Using onion soup mix and gravy,
Smother steaks in.

Cover with foil and bake, about 1 hour at 350
I make this on Monday for Tuesday and I use the gravy that is left from dinner.
Swiss Steak Sauce
2 cups ketchup
2 cups tomato juice 1 cup water or wine (I use wine, my mother makes
gallons of it)
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons Heinz 57 sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
Pour over browned steaks and sprinkle with shredded carrots, chopped celery,
sliced thin green pepper rings and onions.
Cover with foil and bake 1 hour on 350°F.
I never measure and I try to do this when I have green peppers and onions from
the garden. The best wine I have used is homemade onion and potato wine. It is
one of mothers things she does well.
Here in Nebraska we are Big Red Husker fans.

2 cans of chopped tomatoes
4 carrots peeled and sliced in chunks
1/2 head cabbag4 cups water
Salt & pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons rice ( I use instant)

This will make you think it is a vegetable chili minus the chili powder
This should work in a large crock pot for when you are watching a football game
and won't want to cook. I always say you can watch the game and I will stay in
the kitchen and cook.
I make a large batch of soup or stew each day during the soup season. They like
anything with meat and vegetables in it.
