Round Steak

I can’t resist a good crock-pot recipe.  This particular one is my other half’s favorite dinner.  I’m in luck that he enjoys something so simple to make!  This isn’t one of my more frugal recipes and typically costs around $15.  It makes enough to feed us for a couple days though!  The recipe is from his mother and grandmother, so it’s something I’ve been very happy to “inherit” for my own collection and share with you.

Round Steaks over Mashed Potatoes

You Will Need:

  • 2 Lb. Eye of Round Roast
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 Can Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1-2 Cups Garlic Mashed Potatoes per Person


In a large bowl, mix together the tomato soup, onion soup mix, and water.  Put it aside.  Slice your onion into 1/4 inch pieces and pop out each individual ring.  Layer these rings in the bottom of a crock pot to cover as much area as you can.  They will go several layers high.  Slice your eye of round into 1/2 inch thick pieces to make your steaks.  Layer the steaks on top of your onions in the crock pot.  Pour the soup mix over the steaks.  (Note: This probably won’t cover all of the steaks at first.   That’s okay.  As the onion base begins to soften, it will lower the steaks.)  Turn the crock pot on low and cook for 7-9 hours.

After you’re done cooking the steaks, prepare garlic mashed potatoes for each plate.  I usually make my own, but you can use prepared ones just as easily.  You need them to be just stiff enough to be able to be shaped and withstand having liquid on them without melting.  This meal usually takes around 1-2 cups of potatoes per person.  Create a deep well in the center.  Place one of your steaks in the center of the well.  Spoon out the soup and onion mixture and put it generously over the steak and potatoes.  We drown the food in the tomato gravy, but just enough to cover everything and fill the well is enough.  My other half takes this meal with a beer, like all steaks, but I enjoy it with a nice glass of iced tea.

  10. Did you say 1-2 cups of mashed potatoes per person? My son is going to love you. Really? Yeah, he is going to love you. I never know what to do with round steak, so I do nothing with it. My mom tries to force it on me. It sits in my freezer, then I give it to one of my friends who has boys and she tells me how wonderful it was when she served it! I have to admit, the first picture had me ready to run…but the last picture made me want to sit down and turn on a fireplace somewhere!
