  • Ready In

  1. Combine the flour and salt in a bowl. Gently press the steak into the flour mixture to coat and shake off the excess flour.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the beef until brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove beef from skillet and drain excess oil. Stir the ketchup, onion, and water into the skillet, then add the meat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until tender, about 1 hour.

I never thought of using round steak, I make a similar dish using pork chops. I don't use the flour, although it would thicken the sauce/gravy as it cooks. I simmer with the lid on and then of...
