Family traditions are passed on from generation to generation. But sometimes they jump to another family through marriage.
Scott Hutcheson says he married into a good one with a dish known as Glorified Steak.
- 1-1/2 lbs ground chuck
- 1/2 cup of finely crushed saltine crackers
- 1 packet of dry onion soup mix
- 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (reduced salt)
- Black pepper to taste
- Olive Oil
Using your hands mix together the crackers, dry onion soup mix, ground pepper, and the ground chuck. Press firmly into the bottom of a slightly oiled 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover with foil or cling wrap and refrigerate for five hours or over night. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Also prepare a sauté pan by heating to medium high heat and adding enough olive oil to sauté. Remove the meat from the refrigerator and cut it into six to eight squares, dust with flour, and brown both sides in the sauté pan. Do two to three squares at a time and add more oil if needed. Return the browned squares to the baking dish, top with mushroom soup, and cook uncovered for one hour.
