A good, hearty “comfort food” beef dish.


  • 2 1/2 lbs (1.1 kg) round steak cut 1 inch (25 mm) thick
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) peeled and sliced onion
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp (22 ml) dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 ml) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) ground black pepper

Peel the outer skin of the onion and slice the onion across the grain making 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick rings. Set aside. Peel skin from tomatoes using Rotato Express. Chop thoroughly, and set aside. Combine flour, mustard, salt and pepper. Pound as much of the mixture as possible into the steak with a meat hammer. Or if necessary, use the edge of a heavy plate. Cut the meat into serving-sized pieces.

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven. Brown the meat well on both sides. Sprinkle onion, garlic, and carrots over the meat. Add tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Cover and gently heat until the tomatoes begin to break up. Stir sauce to blend, turn meat over, cover tightly, and simmer for about two hours or until meat is very tender. Stir often and add a little water if necessary to keep the sauce from sticking. Serve with potatoes, rice, or egg noodles.

A refreshing and exotic dessert.

  • 1/2 tsp (3 ml) of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) of shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) of chopped pecans
  • Pineapple yogurt


Using the Rotato Express, peel off the mango skin and discard. Continue the peeling of the mango until there is essentially nothing left to peel. Transfer the mango strands into a bowl and lightly cover with lemon juice to prevent the mangos from darkening. Lightly mix in the shredded coconut and chopped pecans. Transfer to a serving plate and top with pineapple yogurt. Very yummy!
