Peppered Steak

2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper (to taste)
1 1/2 lb. round steak (3/4 inch thick)
2 tbsp. shortening
1 can Campbell’s onion soup
1/2 cup ketchup
1 medium green pepper (sliced into 8-10 strips)

Combine flour and seasonings; pound into the meat with a meat hammer or the edge of a heavy sauce pan. In a pan, brown the beat in the shortening and pour off the fat; add in the soup and ketchup; cover and cook on low heat for 1-1 1/2 hour. Add in the green pepper and cook 20-25 minutes more until tender stirring occasionally. Serve hot.

*Johnna’s tip: Add in more veggies that you like i.e. onions, red peppers, mushrooms, etc. Serve with a loaded baked potato (or not so loaded if your watching that waistline…;-) or with some homemade french fries. Also, add in greens such as sauteed asparagus or string beans. Enjoy!
