Cut meat into 6 serving pieces. Combine flour, salt, mustard, pepper, and garlic powder. Pound 2 Tbs. of the flour mixture into the meat. Brown the meat in the shortening on both sides. Drain off excess fat. Add undrained tomatoes, onion, celery, carrots, Worcestershire sauce and cooking wine.

Cover and simmer for 1 1/4 hours or until meat is tender. Remove meat to a serving platter and keep warm. Combine 1/4 C. water and the remaining flour mixture. Stir into tomato mixture until thick and bubbly. Pass with meat. Serve meat and sauce with hot cooked noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.

  • I forgot to add that I used olive oil to brown the steak instead of shortening to make it more healthy.
