The onion soup mix, spices, and some beer make up the flavorful sauce for this round steak dinner. Feel free to use an unsalted beef or chicken stock instead of beer in this recipe.

Round steak is a good choice for the meal, but a lean chuck steak would be excellent as well. Add some sliced carrots or rutabaga along with the potatoes if you'd like.
