Kid-Approved: Grandma Debbie’s Round Steak Recipe
With 6 kids in our family, it’s often hard to find a recipe that everyone enjoys. Usually there is someone who doesn’t like something. So, I have decided to create a series of blog posts giving you tested and true recipes we use in our big family – that the kids love! The first recipe in this series is for Round Steak and Rice.
Let me give you a little background before I dig into the recipe. This was my favorite recipe my mom made for me when I was a child (hence why it’s called Grandma Debbie’s Round Steak Recipe). In fact, this is what I always asked her to make for my birthday dinner! She would make it with Round Steak and serve it over rice with broccoli (topped with mayonnaise of course). With 6 kids, we’ve found ways to stretch the budget. Instead of using Round Steak or Sirloin Steak, I like to use Stew Meat. It is still tender and about half the price! 1 for mommy saving money in the grocery budget! Even though I don’t actually use Round Steak, I still call it Round Steak – ya know, it’s a family tradition and all. While I may change the type of meat, I just can’t justify changing the title.
I made Round Steak with Rice and Broccoli tonight and 2 children had 3 servings, 3 children had 2 servings and 1 child had 1 serving. Both grownups had 2 servings. Everyone walked away from the dinner happy and full! So are you ready for the recipe now? Ok then, let’s get down to business!
