Steak Casserole

This recipe I’ve adapted from my mom’s recipe, that she has also adapted, from a recipe she had in an old French cookbook, dated from the late 60’s. This is what cooking is all about, adapting recipes that are passed on and on and on. She actually got me a photocopy of the original recipe, and I understood why she adapted the recipe herself.

The original recipe called for canned steak! Yes canned steak! What the hell is that!?! They said to be careful not to over cook the canned steak as it would fall apart and look unappetizing! Duhh ya really! 🙁 . So anyway, absolutely no canned steak for me. My mom uses the tenderized steak. Because we didnt have a lot of money, she would use a cheaper cut of meat.

I prefer using round steak myselt. Still not too expensive and I find the taste to be superior. Baked in a casserole, in a yummy sauce, it just gets super tender and melts in your mouth. My mother uses canned veggies. Again, I prefer frozen veggies. I find them fresher and more aldente than the canned version.

I love making food that reminds me of my chilhood. It’s funny how certain smells can transport you almost 40 years back in time. This dish was my mom’s signature dish when we had company over for dinner, and still is! Everytime I visit, she makes this for us!

    When the steak casserole you didn’t say what to do with the corn starch I know you’re supposed to use the flour on the steaks

      Not when I”m using round steak, but if you are uncertain about the cut of meat you use, you could tenderize it first to make sure it will be tender, hope you like this recipe!

    I cannot wait to cook this meal. It’s a memory that I have in high school when my mom would fix it. I like dumping catsup with it to add to the tomato soup taste. I know it’s a cooking no no but I was in high school. I have to investigate more of your recipes, great photo too!

    Hi Mario,

    Thanks for this great casserole dish!!! I am not a great cook but I like to make things that I like and my friends think that I spent a lot of time and work to do it!!! I recently moved into an RV Park in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of TX (Donna,TX). My best friends of over 50 years are here also. We have movie night every Friday and we take turns doing supper and this is one that I am making for them. This looks like it made a fair amount of gravy and will have a nice toasted crispy bread to have it to soak it all up!!! Kudos go out to who ever takes the photos of the food!!! They are clear and sharp and rally make you want to try it. I signed up to follow you by e-mail and FaceBook, so will be looking forward to more great goodies!!! Nice photos of you and your family, especially the girls. Take care and have a good day!!!

    I have tried to wrap my mind around 1 round steak per person! I come from a long line of meat processors,unless I’m thick a round steak per person is WAAAAAAAY to much for 1 individual. You most certainly must mean another cut of beef????

    • mario says:

      Its not the super thick cut, I’m French Canadian and sometime its very hard o translate the cut of meat, but our round steak here is thin,
      it’s an affordable cut of meat, like tenderize steak but without been tenderize. hope that help clarify?
