Country-Style Steak with Curry Gravy pg 326 in The Spice Cookbook
2 lbs boneless chuck or round steak 1/4 C flour
2 tsp salt 2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper 2 Tbs shortening
2 C sliced onion
1 C boiling water 1/2 C sliced carrots
1/2 C sliced celery

Trim excess fat from meat and discard it. Cut steak into serving-size pieces. Score meat or beat with a mallet on a board to break up fibers. Dredge in flour mixed with the 2 tsp salt and pepper. Brown on both sides in shortening in a 10-inch skillet. Add onions, cover, and cook 10 minutes or until onions are limp. Add next 3 ingredients.
Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until meat is tender. Place steak and vegetables on a warm platter. Combine remaining ingredients and add to pan drippings. Stir and cook until gravy is thick. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
