Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds tenderized round steak
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • Water (or milk)
Directions
  • Remove most of the excess fat from the tenderized round steak and cut the steak into serving size pieces. If using round steak that is not tenderized, pound it with a tenderizing mallet.
  • Mix the flour, salt, and pepper together in a shallow bowl.
  • Heat about a tablespoon of the margarine in the skillet over medium to medium-high heat until sizzling.
  • Dredge the steak pieces in the flour and place in the skillet. Only add enough pieces to cover the bottom without crowding.
  • Cook until nicely browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet and place on a plate. Set them aside and fill the skillet with more steak pieces. Continue this process until all the pieces have been browned. You will have to add more margarine in between each batch and maybe a little just before turning each batch. You may end up needing a little more than a 1/4 cup of margarine.
  • Once all the pieces have been browned, place all the browned steak pieces back in the skillet. Pieces will have to be layered.
  • Spread the can of cream of mushroom soup over the top of the steak, cover, and heat until soup is bubbling around the edges. Then turn the heat down to a simmer and allow it to cook, covered, for 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Once the steak is done, remove it from the pan, scraping off some of the soup from its surface back into the pan. Place the steak on a serving platter.
  • Once the steak has been removed, add a little water (or milk) to the skillet, being careful not to add too much or it will thin the gravy too much. Mix it into the soup, scraping the sides and bottom to blend the flavorful piece into the gravy. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat and pour into a serving bowl.
  • Serve the gravy over mashed potatoes (homemade or instant), along with the tenderized round steak.
Note: If you would like more gravy you can add more milk or water and then thicken it with a flour and water thickener. Season as needed with salt and pepper.

Container: Freezer-safe containers or bags
Ingredients
  • 15 cups Fresh sweet corn cut off the cob - per batch
  • 5 cups ice water
  • 1/2 cup sugar - per batch
  • 2 tablespoons salt - per batch
Directions
  • Husk and clean sweet corn, removing as much silk as possible.
  • Prepare a large bowl of ice water and set up a workspace where the water, sugar and salt are located. Also, allow enough space for a large bowl for mixing the corn and an area where you can fill freezer containers or bags.
  • Slice the corn kernels from the cob into a thoroughly cleaned sink.
  • Combine 15 cups of corn with 5 cups of ice water, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of salt.
  • Stir mixture together and the scoop into freezer containers or bags. You can fill pint, quart or gallon size containers. Use whatever you feel is appropriate for your use. Divide liquid evenly between the containers. The liquid is used when you cook the corn before serving.
  • Seal the containers or bags tightly. Be sure to leave room for expansion when the corn freezes.
  • Place the corn in the freezer as soon as possible.
  • TO SERVE: When you are going to serve the frozen corn, place the entire contents in a pan and boil until cooked thoroughly. You will know when it is done by its flavor. If it is done it will have the sweet flavor of sweet corn. If it isn't it will have a raw corn flavor, which means you just need to cook it longer. It can also be cooked in the microwave. Just place frozen corn in a covered microwave-safe dish and make sure there is plenty of room in the dish for when the corn boils. Cook on high for 5 minutes; take out and break up frozen pieces. Return to microwave and cook for 10 minutes; remove and stir. Microwave for 5 more minutes; drain juices and serve.
Note: If you use freezer bags be sure to place them in the freezer standing up so the juices don't leak out. Once they are frozen you can lay them down to store.

  • Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 45-50 minutes or just until it is set. You don't want to over bake it because it will dry out.
  • Meanwhile, clean the strawberries and dice them.
  • Place them into a bowl and add in the 4 tablespoons of sugar. Place into the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool on a cooling rack. Remove the cake from the pan and slice the cake in half horizontally.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until nice and creamy.
  • Spread half of the strawberries over the top of the bottom layer of the cake.
  • Take the top half of the cake and frost the TOP of the cake and then place the frosted side on top of the bottom half. This will give you a nice flat topped cake when finished.
  • Spread the remaining strawberries over the top of the cake and then frost the entire cake. You may not need to use all of the frosting. You should be able to see pieces of the strawberries showing through the frosting.
  • Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
