Our mother-in-law received a Good Housekeeping cookbook as a wedding gift a half century ago. We say that she received it, and not she and her husband received it, because we all know how labor was divided in the 50s.
The Retro Flank Steak (otherwise known as Flank Steak, Creole Style) was printed in this cookbook and became a family favorite.
It's basically ketchup and onions over a slab of meat. But it's tasty ketchup and onions over a slab of meat.
Rating: Truly 1/2 assed
Here's what you need and how you do it
1 flank steak, about 2 lbs.
2 Tablespoons oil
3 cups sliced, peeled onions
3/4 cup ketchup
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Lightly score surface of steak with a sharp knife. Brown on both sides in oil heated in heavy skillet or Dutch oven. Add remaining ingredients. Cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours. Uncover and continue baking until meat is tender and sauce thick, about 1 hour.
Dig in and savor the 1950s goodness.
