Mock Duck (Stuffed Steak)

Who said you needed a chicken or a turkey to give you the excuse for stuffing? Here is a recipe for stuffed steak. My Mom used to make this for us when we were kids. It is supposed to look like a duck. I don’t think it looks anything like a duck, but it is good! Nice with mashed potatoes and peas.

Steak rolled around a bread stuffing and baked.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1½ pounds round steak, about ¾ inch thick
  • 1½ cups soft breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons melted butter (first amount)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (2nd amount)
  • 2½ tablespoons flour
  • ⅓ cup cold water
  1. Pound the steak with a meat pounder to tenderize and flatten it.
  2. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, onion and 1½ tablespoons of melted butter together to make a stuffing.
  3. Spread the stuffing mixture, like a log, down the center of the steak. Bring the sides of the steak around the stuffing, so that you have a tube (like a stuffed cannelloni).
  4. Tie the steak tube so that it stays in shape. Place in a small roasting pan. Mix the boiling water and remaining butter, and pour over the "duck".
  5. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F. for 2½ hours. Remove to a platter.
  6. To make gravy, pour the pan juices into a small saucepan. Make a paste with the flour and cold water and whisk into the saucepan. Heat and stir until thickened. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
