I need something different to do with a nice flat round steak. Anyone know a recipe that I can use to maybe hammer it out, spice it up, roll it up and maybe quick sear then oven bake like a roast?
I made this recipe for flank steak but I think would translate nicely for round, maybe give it a few whacks to tenderize a bit but you can sear and finish in the oven quickly after a marinade and it would be delicious.
http://www.food52.com/recipes... is another great recipe and a round steak would be fine:
You might still have to do some chewin' pardner, but with a tough piece of meat the general rule is cook it till it hollers uncle. Google yourself a Swiss steak recipe and simmer, or crock-pot the stubborn critter overnight.
Maybe I'll make beef jerky outta it. :-D
Beef jerky would work, you can always slow cook it will be tender.
Flatten it out and cut into two portions. Put it in plastic wrap and smack it with a rolling pin a few time. Or better yet use a 'needle tenderizer'.
Make a country fried (chicken fried) steak.
Dust with flour, then eggwash, then flour, eggwash, flour.
Fry and serve with a white creme gravy seasoned with finely ground black pepper.
I highly recommend the needle tenderizer. (Jacquard Tenderizer).
It can turn round steak into a quick cooking tenderness.
I like to cook round steak with onions, green and red pepper, garlic, paprika and tomato sauce and serve it over mashed potatoes. Sear the steak first and then saute all the rest with it..let it simmer in the tomato sauce until tender.
