Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim separable fat from round steak, then cut meat into 4 serving-size pieces. Spray a cold large skillet with nonstick spray. Add the meat pieces to the skillet; brown both sides of each piece. Remove the meat from the skillet.

  • Add mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic to the skillet. Cook until vegetables are nearly tender. Then, stir in undrained tomatoes, dried herbs (if using), and crushed red pepper. Add the meat to the skillet, spooning the vegetable mixture over the meat. Cover and simmer about 1 1/4 hours or until the meat is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in fresh herbs, if using.

  • Transfer the meat to a serving platter. Spoon the vegetable mixture over the meat and sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve with pasta, if desired.
