1 (2 pound) round steak, cut about 1-inch thick
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon shortening
1 1/2 cups water
Cut most of the fat off the steak. Cut steak into 2-inch cubes or strips. Bread round steak pieces with flour. Place breaded pieces into a 12-inch cast iron skillet with melted shortening over medium heat. Brown quickly, remove from pan, and reduce heat. Add water slowly, being careful so that it does not splatter. Put in browned meat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer, covered, for 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Makes 6 servings.
