Hey , my cookies today , I'll be showing you how to make my savory , smothered steaks and gravy .
Let's cook starting with the steak .
I'm using a sirloin but don't overthink this guys .
You can use any inexpensive cut of beef here .
You can use um eye of brown .
Uh What is it ?
The top sirloin , whatever you can find even cube steak would work .
You can leave them whole , but I like to cut it up like a beef tip almost .
And then I am going to douse it in a worst disher sauce and some seasoning .
You can use Cajun seasoning like me or just your favorite seasoning salt , then give it a quick toss , make sure everything is coated and evenly seasoned .
I've poured some all purpose flour into a shallow dish and I'm going to season it with some garlic powder , onion powder and some seasoning salt .
Um You can use the same one that you used with the steak , but I like to switch it up and use something different .
It really doesn't matter guys .
It looks like a lot , but I promise you it isn't .
Let's go ahead and take a fork and mix it together really ?
Well , then we're gonna grab our steak and we're gonna dredge the steak in the flour on both sides .
Just make sure you pat it on both sides and then shake off that excess and do that with all of your steak pieces over at the stove .
We want to heat up some vegetable oil , get it good and hot and once it's hot we can add in our steak pieces .
Now , I'm doing this in two batches .
You don't want to overcrowd the skillet and that will cause the meat to steam instead of brown .
And we want that nice crispy um coating on both sides of the meat .
So I'm gonna brown them on both sides , 2 to 3 minutes per side until it looks like this .
And once we've done with all of our steak , then we can remove it from the pan , leave those drippings in there in that same pan .
We want to melt some butter to stir it around and allow it to melt .
And then we're gonna add in our veggies .
I'm using thinly sliced bell pepper onion and mushrooms .
Mushrooms are optional , but I highly recommend that you use those .
So just pour those in and then we wanna stir it around and allow the veggies to saute and soften and to speed up the process a little bit .
I like to cover it with a lid for about three minutes .
After our veggies have softened , we wanna save that flour that we use to dredge the steak in and we're going to add some of it to this mixture .
This is gonna give us a really thick and luscious gravy and just stir that flour out until it's no longer visible .
Now I'm gonna pour in some sherry cooking wine and we're gonna stir it well and allow it to reduce .
You'll be able to tell once it starts to cook down and reduce it takes about two minutes at the most .
Just give it a good stir .
Now we're gonna pour in our beef stock .
You can use beef stock or beef broth .
It's up to you and off camera , I added in one beef boon cube to jack up that beefy flavor and now I'm just gonna stir it well and bring it to a simmer .
Once it reaches a simmer , then we can add our steak in .
Now that our steak is back in .
We want to make sure that it's priced down into that gravy and cover it and give it a good stir .
Then we want to lower our heat to about a medium low setting .
We're gonna cover this up with a lid and allow it to simmer for about one hour or until that meat is tender .
Just check it while the steaks and gravy are simmering .
I decided to make my mashed potatoes .
I have that recipe and tutorial already on the channel .
Go ahead and click the link in the description box .
The only difference is I used basil instead of rosemary .
And let me tell you they were bombed with this gravy , right ?
So handle that while the meat is simmering .
And after that hour guys look at this , this reminder that God loves us .
Look at this gravy just so good and perfect .
I tasted it and of course , since we seasoned every component of this dish , all I needed to add was some black pepper .
Now guys , this gravy is perfectly fine just as is .
But I wanted to add sour cream .
Yes , a little bit of sour cream to give it that beef strong enough .
Kind of feel .
It added richness and it was just perfect in this gravy .
Once you stir in the sour cream , you can go ahead and stir this up over those basil mashed potatoes .
The recipe link containing all measurements and ingredients will be linked down there in the description box .
All I did now was just added some green onion on top for a little garnish .
Thank you guys so much for watching .
I hope you enjoyed this .
Until next time I gotta eat .
Be blessed .
