It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is FLANK STEAK WITH DRESSING!
This one takes some cooking time but it’s so flavorful and delicious, it’s worth the effort. When I was looking through my cookbooks for this week’s “fancy”, I was surprised to find I haven’t shared this one before. I haven’t made it in a long time either. I’ll have to fix that just as soon as I get moved to my new home. I can already imagine the wonderful smells in my new kitchen this fall. Yummmmmm!
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

FLANK STEAK WITH DRESSING
Trim 2 lb. flank steak.
Pound in: 1 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. paprika, ¼ tsp. dry mustard, 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce.
Melt ¼ cup butter. Add and sauté 2 T. onions until brown.
Add 1 cup bread crumbs, ¼ tsp. salt, 2 T. parsley, 3 T. celery, a slightly beaten egg. Spread dressing over steak. Roll loosely and tie.
Heat in skillet 3 T. oil. Sear steak.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place meat roll in casserole or covered dish.
Stir into oil in the skillet, 2 T. flour. Add 1 cup water or stock, 1 cup tomato juice, and ¼ tsp. salt. Pour over steak. Bake 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Add seasoning if required.
NOTE: My family is partial to mashed potatoes, so I tend to double up on the stock/tomato juice/salt so there’s plenty of savory gravy.
