This recipe I'm going to let the photos do most of the talking. I would like to say though that this is the BEST smothered steak I have ever had - I can't believe that Mr. Arkansas and I came up with it. Not only is this dish amazingly tender, if you use a pressure cooker for it like we did it will only take you 35 minutes to complete - and that's including the prep time for the mixed veggie side that we made as well.
You will need:
2lbs Top Round Sirloin Steak
16 oz or so mushroom of your choice we used baby bella
Salt, Pepper and choice of steak seasoning.
2 tbs cornstarch
You can cook this either by using a crock pot (6-8 hours on low) or a pressure cooker - we used a pressure cooker for this demonstration.
First cut up for steak into 4-6 serving size pieces and brown all sides of your steak.
Once your meat is browned (about 3 min each side) place it in the bottom of your pressure cooker. Add 1 C water. Place lid on and cook for 18 minutes.
At the 18 minute mark cool immediately. Mr. Arkansas always checks the temp to make sure its cooked properly .
The meat was perfect after a short 18 min.
Set the meat aside we place ours in the microwave to keep it warm (one day I hope to own a warming oven a girl can dream).
Next, mix 2 tbs of cornstarch with 1/4 C cold water. Slowly add this mixture to the drippings left in the pressure cooker - whisking until it comes to a boil.
Once its to a full boil add the mushrooms and simmer for about 1-2 minutes.
Once the gravy done, top your steak with a generous amount and enjoy!
I sprinkled the top of my steak with garlic nuggets, details on those coming in the next few days.
