Servings: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 50 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 1/2 pounds round steak, thinly sliced
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups chopped onion
6 cups beef broth
15 cups washed and chopped greens (suggested mix of mustard, turnip and collard)
1/2 stick butter
Steamed white rice, for serving





For the rub:

Mix all ingredients together. Sprinkle 2 to 3 tablespoons on sliced steak, tossing to insure the meat is covered. Reserve for later use.

In a cast iron skillet, add flour over low heat. Brown flour, stirring occasionally to avoid burning, about 5 minutes.

Heat heavy 5-quart cast iron pot; over medium heat, add oil. Brown seasoned meat for 2 or 3 minutes, turning once. Add onion and browned flour. Pour 1-cup of broth and stir to combine well. Add some of the greens, and then add more broth. Repeat this until there’s no more broth and greens. Lower the heat and cook for 45 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of rub and 1/2 stick of butter. When the butter has melted and greens and meat are tender, transfer to a serving bowl and serve over rice.

My family & I really enjoyed this dish. The only difference is that I used all collards since my family consists of ones that dislike turnip & mustard greens. The flavor is awesome! Not difficult or time consuming, a hearty meal that's great for the winter months. I would double the amount next time.
