THE INGREDIENTS NEEDED:
FOR THE STEAK:
4 cube steaks (usually round steak that’s been tenderized).
1 Cup.Of all-purpose flour.
1 Tsp.Of salt.
1/2 Tsp.Of black pepper.
1/2 Tsp.Of paprika.
2 Tbsp.Of vegetable oil.
FOR THE ONION GRAVY:.
2 large onions, thinly sliced.
2 Tbsp.Of butter.
2 Tbsp.Of all-purpose flour.
2 Cups.Of beef broth.
Salt and black pepper to taste.
While preparing the gravy, set the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees Celsius) to keep the sirloin toasty.
Mix the flour, salt, pepper, and paprika in a shallow dish. The cube steaks will be coated with this flour mixture.
In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil. The pan must be large enough to accommodate all of the steaks without congestion.
While the oil is heating, dredge each sirloin cube in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring that both sides are evenly coated. The tenderloin is lightly coated with flour.
Place the steaks in the heated skillet and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.
Once the steaks are done cooking, place them in an ovenproof dish and place them in a prepared oven to keep warm.
Prepare The Onion Gravy:
In the same skillet as the steaks, combine the butter and cut scallions.
Cook the onions over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender and caramelized, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Add two tablespoons of flour to the caramelized onions and continue to simmer for an additional two to three minutes, whisking constantly. This will aid in the gravy’s thickening.
While stirring, slowly pour in the beef broth. It will take approximately 5 to 7 minutes for the mixture to simmer and coagulate. Ensure there are no masses by periodically stirring. Salt and black pepper are added to flavor the gravy.
Serve The Amish Poor Man’s Steak:
Take the steaks out of the oven and position them on plates. Ladle the hot, savory onion gravy over each steak generously.
This dish is typically served with basic sides, such as mashed potatoes, buttered noodles, or green beans, which complement the flavors flawlessly.
