Stewed Steak and Potatoes

This recipe is easy comfort food that takes minimal effort, and with a few household ingredients, dinner will be ready in no time.

When it comes to the steak you use, choose what is best for you. I didn’t have much money and saw some top-round steak on sale for $2.00 a pack. I got three packs and made a magical dinner recipe for the family.

If you do decide to use the top round, I must warn you it is tough so you want to let the meat simmer as I did. I let it simmer for an hour because I had other things to tend to, but in about 45 minutes, this recipe will be ready.

You can also make cornbread or have dinner rolls to help gather the gravy. If you don’t want to have potatoes, you can substitute the potatoes and make a side of sticky rice.

Stewed Steak and Potatoes

This recipe reminds me of the most savory comfort food. The meat will be tender and the potatoes flavorful.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes


  • 2 pounds of Top Round Steak
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 3 yellow potatoes diced
  • 1 Tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dill weed
  • 4 Tablespoons of kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of pepper
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 Tablespoons of flour


  • Preheat your pot to medium high, use some oil to coat bottom. I use my cast iron skillet.
  • Add steak to pan. Optional: you can season your steak any way you would like. I use a salt and pepper
  • Fry on both sides for 5-7 minutes. Remove from skillet
  • Reduce heat to medium
  • Add flour and stir nonstop. You will notice the flour will start to change color. Slowly pour some water. KEEP STIRRING because you are making a roux for the stew.
  • Once all the water has been added, add your steak and vegetables back to the pot and bring to a boil. Add your seasonings and once it reaches a boil, turn down to medium low and stir occasionally.
  • Let cook for 1 hour. Taste and add seasonings to your liking.


This goes great with rice, dressing, or eating cornbread.
