Tantalizing aroma as chuck steak cooks steps up appetite appeal


  • 3 lbs. chuck steak
  • 2 tblsp. softened butter or regular margarine
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 large lemon, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 c. ketchup
  • 1 tblsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ c. water


  • Wipe steak with damp cloth; place in large baking dish. Rub with softened butter. Season with salt and pepper; cover with lemon and onion slices.
  • Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and water, and pour over steak. Cover tightly so meat will steam tender. (Aluminum foil makes a snug-fitting lid.) Bake in moderate oven (350°) 2 hours, or until tender.
