Swiss Steak

Total Time:
1 hr 40 min
Prep:
10 min
Cook:
1 hr 30 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 round steak (approximately 1 1/2 pounds), see note
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, cut into strips
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut into strips
Directions

Cut steak into serving-size pieces. Season, to taste, with garlic powder and salt and pepper. Dust meat with flour. In heavy skillet, brown both sides of meat in vegetable oil. Transfer to Dutch oven. Combine garlic, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, and 1 tomato-can measure of water. Pour over steak and simmer over low heat until meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours adding water, if necessary to keep meat partially covered. Season, to taste, with additional salt and pepper. Hint: Cook this in a slow-cooker, according to manufacturers instructions, on low for a most fabulous dinner. Low heat on a slow cooker is about 200 degrees F and high heat on a slow cooker is about 300 degrees F.

Note: to ensure tenderness, it is necessary to have the butcher run the round steak through a cuber.

Paula, thanks for doing southern dishes the southern way, this is the perfect Swiss steak. I served it with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Totally tasty! Very good! I did add a can of 'Cream of Celery Soup' and a half cup more water with that besides the diced tomato can of water. Other than that, followed the recipe. I always use Cream of Celery soup...(my mother's recipe) and thought it sure couldn't hurt! Anyways, I will keep this and make it again...very, very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I used cubed steak instead of round steak. My guys ate it up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really like this easy recipe. I also used beef broth instead of water and added extra garlic and a few shakes of crushed red peppers. We prefer a little spice. Served with rice and crusty bread. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe. A new family favorite. I've shared it on Facebook so more can enjoy it as much as my family did. Don't be afraid 2 add additional seasoning. I always put my own spin on recipes. Thanks Paula Deen. item not reviewed by moderator and published
