I have quite a few recipes that are my go-to’s for days when I’m either 1) too tired to cook, or 2) I just can’t come up with anything more exciting. Most of them are one-pot meals that require a little prep and have a long cooking time. I like that. It gives me time to do other things like set a pretty table or make a beautiful salad while the main dish tends to itself.
This Creamy Steak and Mushrooms is one of those old favorite standby recipes. It’s simple, satisfying, hearty food that is always enjoyed in our home. BeeBop really likes it. I mean, come on… it’s steak, mushrooms, and rice. That’s first cousins to meat and potatoes, right? Just kiddin’ sweetie.
Start by cutting the steak into 1/2″ cubes. Make sure it’s nice and dry, blotting with paper towels to remove moisture if needed. Sprinkle all over with seasoned salt. I always use Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt, but any one that you like is fine.
Heat the oil over medium heat in a heavy bottomed dutch oven. Add the steak and cook, stirring frequently, until browned. Remove the steak to a paper towel lined plate and set it aside for now.
Into the same pan, add the chopped onions, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until the onions are soft and translucent.
Return the beef to the pan, add the mushroom soup, water, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
Cover the pan, place in oven and cook for 1 hour.
Serve over rice.
