Steak & Gravy

round steak and gravy


Round steak and gravy is a dish that I absolutely loved growing up. Our family has a tradition of cooking a special meal for birthdays, and I am pretty sure my sister and I requested this dish every year!

Pair this dish with mashed potatoes or rice and butterbeans!
