To marinate, take a large measuring bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, mustard, garlic, pepper, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes. In a large food storage bag, pour the marinade over the meat. To coat the meat, seal the bag and turn it several times. Refrigerate the steak for 4 to 7 hours, turning the bag over now and then to ensure the marinade is equally distributed on both sides.

Now preheat the oven to broil. Place the meat on a baking sheet after removing it from the marinade and allowing the excess drip off. Place the rack 2 to 3 inches away from the heat source. Depending on the thickness of the cut and desired consistency, broil for 6 to 9 minutes on each side. Preheat the grill and remove the meat from the marinade, allowing the excess to drip away. After putting the steak on the grill, cook it for 5 to 10 minutes. 

Before slicing the steak, remove it from the heat source and rest for 4 to 5 minutes. Your delicious marinated top round beef is ready.

Ingredients for Round Steak and Gravy

  • Tenderized round steak, 3 pounds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 cup of margarine
  • One cream of mushroom soup (in a can)
  • water or milk

Method of Cooking

Cut the tenderized round steak into serving-size pieces after removing the majority of the extra fat. If you’re using a round steak that hasn’t been tenderized, use a tenderizing mallet to pound it down.

Take a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Then in a skillet, melt approximately a tablespoon of margarine over medium-high heat until it sizzles. Place the steak pieces in the skillet after covering them in flour.

Cook until both sides are well browned. After all, steaks are browned; place them back in a skillet. Cover the steak with a can of cream of mushroom soup and heat it until the liquid is boiling around the edges. Cook it for 50-60 min on reduced heat. The steak is ready. Now place the steak on a plate to serve.

Some of the soup will remain in the skillet. Now add a small amount of water or milk in the same skillet. Scrape the edges and bottom of the bowl to incorporate the tasty piece into the gravy. Boil it on heat, then transfer to a serving bowl. Serve the delicious tenderized round steak and gravy. You can add more water or milk for gravy, according to your need.
