We almost always served this with mashed potatoes and green beans, which can of course be "from scratch" or if you are rushed for time you could always make the instant mashed potatoes and heat up a can of green beans. Either way, I think you will really enjoy this version of baked steak, even though there are many out there, and consider it a "keeper".
2 lbs round steak
¼ cup flour
3 Tbs oil
1 can tomato paste (6 ounce)
1 1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp sugar
1 onion, peeled and sliced
1 bell pepper, seeded and sliced
Cut steak into pieces (serving size) and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Coat with flour then brown meat in skillet with the hot oil. Do not cook through. Remove and place meat in large casserole dish.
In pan, mix drippings and 1 can of tomato paste, 1 ½ cups water, ½ tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, ½ clove garlic, one bay leaf, ¼ tsp thyme, ¼ tsp sugar, all together to make a sauce. Stir with whisk and set aside.
Arrange onion rings and bell pepper rings over meat. Pour sauce over meat, onions and bell pepper slices.
