Stovetop-Braised Round Steak

Stovetop-Braised Round Steak (4 servings)


  • One pound round steak, cut into 4
  • One cup tomato sauce
  • One cup beef broth
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Three tablespoons butter, divided
  • Two tablespoons soy sauce
  • One tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • One clove garlic, minced
  • One small onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Pat the round steaks dry with paper towels and season with pepper and salt. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium-high heat till it melts and shimmers hot.  Sear the steaks at 3 minutes for each side. Set the steaks apart.
  2. Add in the remaining butter and heat till it fully melts. Toss in and sauté the onions for 5 minutes, followed by the garlic for another minute. Stir occasionally. Add the tomato sauce, soy sauce, maple syrup, and vinegar. Stir thoroughly, add the broth, and stir again. Leave to boil.
  3. Place the steaks into the sauce and drop the heat to medium-low. Place lid and allow it to simmer for about 1 to 1½ hours. Uncover the pan at the final 20 minutes.
  4. Once the cooking time is done, set the pan down and serve the steaks alone or with the sauce. Pair the recipe as you will for regular steaks.
