Steak Bake Casserole

I often enjoyed this casserole at my mom-in-law's table, many years ago. I made it recently for old times sake, and it's still every bit as good.

  • 1 1/2 lbs. round or chuck steak, cut into 1/2" strips
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. can tomatoes (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 (4 oz.) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen French cut green beans
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  1. Sprinkle meat with flour, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  2. Brown meat lightly in large skillet.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except green beans and sesame seeds.
  4. Simmer for 30-45 minutes (or until meat is tender), stirring occasionally.
  5. Cook green beans as directed.
  6. Add cooked beans.
  7. Pour into 2 1/2 quart casserole.
  8. Prepare muffin batter and drop by tablespoons onto hot meat mixture.
  9. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  10. Bake uncovered at 400°F for about 20 minutes.

Tangy Sesame Muffins:
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon. salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  1. In mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and dry mustard.
  2. Mix milk, egg and oil...and add to dry ingredients.
  3. Stir only until moistened.
Notes: I used fresh green beans, cooked to tender crisp...instead of frozen French cut beans.

  5. What a nice blog! I would love to find the recipe to the bread pictured on the top left side of your banner!


  6. This looks down home good Judy!!

  7. I made this tonight and it was delicious. I did run into two problems though. I only had chili seasoned diced tomatoes. Oh well a little flavor never hurt anyone. The other issue was the muffins did not bake on the bottoms even though I baked it for extra time. We just popped our bowls in the evil microwave for a few seconds and it fixed the problem. Very yummy!!!

  8. Did not realize a blog could be this addictive. Love it and want to cook constantly.

  9. what a great idea - I have some cheaper cut meat and this will be agreat way to useit up
