This is a recipe for beef chuck steak in a yummy sauce of my own creation. Now, let me just warn you that I haven’t tried this recipe on anyone else yet, so I don’t even have Hubby to vouch for me. But, just trust me. It’s good.
- beef chuck steak (one large or two individual-sized)
- 1 tbsp butter
- dill weed
- garlic powder
- ground red pepper
- ¼ onion, diced
- ½ orange bell pepper, diced
- ¼ tsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp steak sauce
- 2 tbsp red wine
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 2 tbsp warm water
1. Prepare the sauce in a small bowl by mixing the warm water and cornstarch and then adding the rest of the ingredients. Stir well!
2. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium heat. Add and sauté the onion and bell pepper. (The onion should just begin to turn translucent.)
3. Clear a space in the middle of the vegetables and add the steak. Raise the burner to high and cook the steak very briefly on each side, so it is just barely brown, then reduce to low heat.
4. Season the top of the steak lightly with garlic powder, ground red pepper, marjoram, thyme, and dill weed.
5. Stir the sauce again, then cover the steak with it.
6. Cook 30 seconds, turn steak over, season with salt.
7. Increase heat until the sauce begins to simmer and cook, turning the steak often and stirring the sauce so that it constantly covers the steak. Continue to simmer until the sauce is thick and the meat is cooked to taste. You can serve this as I did, with green beans and toast, or however else you like. Serves 2!
