Creamy Slow Cooked Swiss Steak Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 3; 1/2 hour prep time | Active Time: | Makes: Serves 6

Winter, cold weather and what most people crave is True Comfort Food. Good hearty warm meals we all enjoy. Well this is one of them. This is one that can easily be made in the crock pot for those who would like this on a busy week day.

And yes … I am using a can of mushroom soup. I am definitely not a fan of creamed soups in my dishes, however this really works and it is still a favorite of mine.

Serve this with horshradish potatoes and chives and some baby peas with a herb butter. To me it can’t get much better. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 lb round steak, cut into serving portions and pounded flat
  • 1/2 cup flour to dredge meat in before sauteing
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced pretty thin
  • 1 green pepper cut in rings
  • 2 cups mushrooms sliced (button or crimini are fine)
  • 1 can of diced Italian tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon worscestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 tablespoons salt and pepper (1 for pounding the meat; 1 for the sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil and butter to saute the meat and vegetables.
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. First prepare the meat. Dredge each piece of the round steak in a mix of the flour, s/p and then place between saran wrap and pound until faily thin.
  2. Then in a large frying pan, melt the butter on medium to medium high heat and saute the meat on each side until lightly brown, Remove to a plate while you saute the onions and peppers.
  3. In the same pan add a little bit more butter and saute the onions, peppers and mushrooms and cook 3-4 minutes until lightly soft.
  4. In a bowl, mix the broth, soup, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, worscestershire, herbs, salt, and pepper. Add to the pan and then top with the meat. Gently fold to make sure the meat is covered by the sauce. Reduce the temperature to low and simmer for 2 hours.
