I love making this for dinner. Barbecue Skillet Beef is delicious. Love the gravy. Really love the gravy. I usually pick up a small roast on sale, cut it up and use it to make this weeknight winner! You can use any cut of steak too. I always figure why spend money unnecessarily! Ken, my husband, loves hearing me say that! Served with rice or mashed potatoes this dish will not disappoint!
We never have any leftovers! You won’t either! Barbecue Skillet Beef disappears that quickly! It is total comfort food for me. Especially on days when you just need something warm and yummy in your tummy! This recipe is definitely worth a try!
Barbecue Skillet Beef
- 1 1/2 pounds beef or steak, cut into bite sized chunks
- 2 tablespoons olive or another vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/3 cup barbecue sauce, your favorite variety
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 3-5 dashes hot sauce
- 2 tablespoons butter
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet until it shimmers or a drop of water flicked in it dances. Add onions, sprinkle with salt, and cook for about 5 minutes, or lightly brown and tender. Remove from pan and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Wipe your skillet with paper towel.
Add another tablespoon of oil to your skillet and heat it up. Rinse and pat beef or steak dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add to your skillet and cook until done, between 7 and 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely or tent with foil, and set aside.
Now back to your skillet. Add onions, broth, paprika, garlic, hot sauce and barbecue sauce and simmer for about 4 minutes. Add butter to thicken if necessary and stir. Taste mixture to see if it needs any seasoning. Add steak or beef as well as their juices to your skillet and stir until evenly coated. Serve with rice or noodles. Enjoy!
