With 6 kids in our family, it’s often hard to find a recipe that everyone enjoys.  Usually there is someone who doesn’t like something.  So, I have decided to create a series of blog posts giving you tested and true recipes we use in our big family – that the kids love!  The first recipe in this series is for Round Steak and Rice.  

Let me give you a little background before I dig into the recipe.  This was my favorite recipe my mom made for me when I was a child (hence why it’s called Grandma Debbie’s Round Steak Recipe).  In fact, this is what I always asked her to make for my birthday dinner!  She would make it with Round Steak and serve it over rice with broccoli (topped with mayonnaise of course).  With 6 kids, we’ve found ways to stretch the budget.  Instead of using Round Steak or Sirloin Steak, I like to use Stew Meat.  It is still tender and about half the price!  1 for mommy saving money in the grocery budget!  Even though I don’t actually use Round Steak, I still call it Round Steak – ya know, it’s a family tradition and all.  While I may change the type of meat, I just can’t justify changing the title.

I made Round Steak with Rice and Broccoli tonight and 2 children had 3 servings, 3 children had 2 servings and 1 child had 1 serving.  Both grownups had 2 servings.  Everyone walked away from the dinner happy and full!  So are you ready for the recipe now?  Ok then, let’s get down to business! 



– 2 or 3 pounds Stew Meat (or Round Steak or Sirloin Steak)
– 4 tbsp. Butter
– Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
– 3 cans Campbell’s Beef Consommé Soup
– 1/4 bottle Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce


1 – Cut up the stew meat into smaller, bite-size pieces.  I like to trim the fat from the meat.

2 – Melt butter in a pan.  Add meat and brown.
