This round steak is browned and then baked and served with homemade pan gravy. You can serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans. Or, you can serve it with any of your family's favorite vegetables. This is a classic Southern supper recipe.


  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds beef round steak

  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
