Round Steak, cut into serving size pieces
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups water
2 Tablespoons Beef bouillon
1/2 a large onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 carrots, sliced
Mix flour with salt, pepper & garlic powder. Dredge steak in flour mixture and brown in Instant Pot on ‘Saute’. (Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of flour mixture to thicken gravy) When steak pieces are all browned remove to plate and set aside.
Add 2 cups water to Instant Pot and stir, loosening any cooked on pieces. Add beef bouillon and stir until dissolved. Add onions, celery and carrots to liquid mixture, giving a good stir and let come to a boil.
Turn Instant Pot off and add steak back, submerging under the liquid. Put lid on Instant Pot, making sure that valve is closed. Cook on ‘Meat/Stew’ for 25 minutes. When timer goes off, turn Instant Pot off and do a natural pressure release (NPR) for about 15 minutes, if pin has not dropped do a quick pressure release (QR) to release any remaining pressure. Remove lid.
Remove steak pieces to a plate. Turn Instant Pot to ‘Saute’. Combine reserved flour mixture and 1/4-1/2 cup of cold water and then add to bubbling liquid in Instant Pot, stirring the whole time. Add enough of the flour/water mixture until gravy is to your desired thickness.
Serve with mashed potatoes and veggie of your choice for a real comfort meal.
**Can also be prepared on the stove top/oven. Saute the steak in a skillet on the stove top and then remove steak to a casserole dish and set aside. Add water and boullion and bring to a boil. Add onions, celery and carrots. Pour all over steak pieces.
Bake at 325 for 2 to 2.5 hours. Stir occasionally. Add water if needed. Will make it’s own gravy.
