Guest Blogger Steak San Marco

Welcome Stephanie and her Steak San Marco recipe! Be sure and check out Stephanie’s blog for more recipes and a glimpse at her kitchen & bathroom redo.

Steak San Marco is similar to beef tips and rice but with a tomato base, which really lightens up the hearty dish for the warmer months. It's also a hands-off dish, so you can go for a walk or relax while the dish simmers.

Steak San Marco

2 lbs. cubed steak, 1 inch cubes
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 (1 lb.) can Italian peeled tomatoes
1 tsp. oregano
ground pepper
garlic powder
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

1. In a large skillet, arrange meat and cover with onion soup mix and tomatoes. Sprinkle with oregano, garlic powder, pepper, oil and vinegar. Stir to combine.
2. Simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is tender.
3. Serve over rice.
