Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak


"I threw this together in my crock pot one day and we loved it! A little time consuming because I sauteed the vegetables and browned the meat first, but it's well worth it. Browning the meat first gives it a better flavor. This is great with mashed potatoes!"

Very good and very easy. I added some Worchestershire sauce and a pkg of onion soup mix in with the tomatoes and let the pot sit on low all day. The steak was tender and the sauce was perfect with mashed potatoes. ~~~Since my previous review, I've made this steak with and without browning the meat first, and I can't tell much of a difference. Now I just add some flour into the sauce mixture for thickening purposes and it's still awesome!


I have never made swiss steak before and thought it might just be an "alright" meal. I was surprised at how easy is was. I did make some changes based on my families likes. Instead of carrots and celery (my kids wont eat it) I added a small can of cut up mushrooms, garlic and mushroom diced tomatoes and a diced fresh tomatoe. I didn't have 10 hours so I cooked it on high for 4 hours then turned to low for 2-3 more hours. I left this and a bag of boil-in-bag rice with the sitter. When I arrived home that night there was NONE left. They said it was so good they couldn't stop eating it! When my husband arrived home he said that there was barley enough for him. I assume it was delicious (since I didn't even get any). I will definatly make this again and again.

I followed the basic ingredients and measurements for this Swiss Steak but was too lazy to sear the meat or shred the carrots. I put the veggies in the crock pot, then the meat chunks, threw in the seasonings and flour and gave it a stir. It turned out great! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
