Oven Baked Round Steak

When I was growing up, my mother made this Oven Baked Round Steak Recipe for us at least once a month, usually on Sundays. Because it needs to bake in the oven for a few hours, she’d prepare everything and slide it in the oven as we were on our way out the door to church. When we came home, she’d prepare the side dishes and lunch was ready and on the table in about 15 minutes. Today, I also make this dish on Sundays, about once a month, and my own family continues to enjoy the tradition!

When I was first married, Nick was in enlisted in the Navy and I worked as a Bank Teller. We obviously didn’t have a lot of money, and I needed easy recipes to make as I learned to cook for us. This was perfect because Round Steak was an inexpensive cut of beef, that gets really tender baking at low temperatures over the course of a few hours. Fast forward twenty years and three children later, and it’s still a great recipe for our family. Having three boys who are teen/tweenagers that eat an incredible amount of food, this recipe is adaptable. I can easily add additional cuts of round steak to the pan, and adjust the quantity of gravy that I’m making, if I need to, while still keeping on budget. Sprite-Biscuits

I serve my Oven Baked Round Steak with mashed potatoes (add some gravy on top) and usually corn or green beans, and some Sprite Biscuits. The sprite biscuits require just 4 ingredients, to make, and are very delicious homemade rolls!

Friends who’ve enjoyed this meal in our home have proclaimed it among the best oven baked steak recipes they’ve tried. Other than Pot Roast, it’s really the only oven baked beef I’ve made, though I do have some enticing oven roasted steak recipes pinned to try in the near future.

Green Apple DumplingsFor dessert, consider making these Green Apple Dumplings. They do require 7 ingredients, but one of them is Sprite, so if you’re already using a can for the Sprite Biscuits, you can use some of what’s left to make the dumplings!

*7 Up or other Lemon Lime Soda also works as a substitute. Sprite is something we usually have on hand in the pantry, so that’s what I use.

Brown Gravy SauceInstead of paying $1 per packet of Brown Gravy Sauce, I now buy the big 21 oz bottle from Amazon, which equals approximately 14 packages (42 tablespoons if my calculations are correct). My local warehouse club sells it too, but it’s $2 cheaper currently at Amazon. It has instructions on the label, but I use 3 tablespoons with 1 cup of water to equal one packet. Less water makes it thicker, more water makes it thinner. Since my family thinks brown gravy is a requirement for mashed potatoes, it saves me money to keep the big jar in the pantry versus buying multiple packets at the supermarket every week.

Oven Baked Round SteakUpdate: A few people have emailed to ask what type of oven safe baking dish I use. I received a 9×13 Pyrex Baking Dish as a wedding gift, 20 years ago. It’s still the same dish I use today. While I don’t know how much it cost back then, Amazon does offer a similar item in a pack of 2 for under $20. Oxo has a Freezer to Oven safe 9×13 pan, with a lid, at a reasonable price as well. On a side note, the items that I recall receiving as wedding gifts that have held up well under frequent use over the past 20 years are items that I like to gift at wedding showers. This makes the list!

These are a few of the items I find helpful in my own kitchen when preparing this Oven Baked Steak Recipe:
