With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to take some time this week to honor two very special mothers in my life, my mother and my mother-in-law. Today, my mother-in-law was kind enough to guest post, and on Thursday I will be sharing one of my mother’s special dishes.
I am thrilled to have my mother-in-law guest posting today. She is sharing a delicious and special dish and also her mouth watering photo. This is the ultimate comfort food! She is an amazing cook and so was her beautiful mother. I will turn it over to her 😀
Ethel’s Country Style Steak
This is a recipe my Mom, Ethel, made a lot for our family. I learned to make it later on when I was married, and my family loved it too! When she first made it she didn’t add tomatoes, but one day she decided to try it, and it was quite good. It gives a little different flavor to the gravy. Everyone loves it so much, I decided to share it today on my daughter-in-law’s blog for Mother’s Day. She asked me to guest post to honor me, and I also wanted to honor my amazing Mom for all the wonderful recipes she taught me and shared with me. I am now passing some of them on to my daughter and daughter-in-law, in hopes they will pass it on to their daughters one day too. ☺
I like to serve it over or with rice, and a side of butter beans or peas, and homemade biscuits. It is a delicious and filling meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does and did.
