Ingredients

  • 2 lb red meat roast/round steaks, ones that need to be slow cooked/are tough
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil/tallow/lard
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon ketchup PER steak, We use an organic, low sugar/salt brand. Not all organic brands are low sugar! Simply Natural is our brand of choice
  • 1/2-1 Tablespoon honey or brown sugar PER steak, I'll let that be your call
  • 2 cup water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Slice up your meat if it's in a roast. You'll want 1/2 " thick steaks. Pound them with a meat mallet or a heavy spoon.
  • Heat up a pan over medium-high heat.
  • Mix together ketchup and honey in a heat proof bowl or glass measuring cup.
  • Season the flour with salt and pepper on a plate or in a container.
  • Dredge the steaks in flour.
  • Add oil/fat to the pan and then add steaks, cooking in batches so they can evenly brown.
  • If you're using a dutch oven, put the steaks aside on plate while working on other batch. If you're using a pan with tinfoil, put them into a pan.
  • When steaks are done, add a bit more oil if needed.
  • Then add in onions and let them get some colour.
  • Put them in a a bowl, or on top of the steaks in your pan.
  • Deglaze the pan with half of the water.
  • Add the water to the honey/ketchup and stir it around, then add in the rest of your water and mix it well.
  • If you're using a dutch oven, put the steaks back in, put onions on top, then pour your ketchup/honey water over the top. If you're using a pan, pour the water overtop of the steaks.
  • Cover your dutch oven/pan and bake for 45 minutes.
