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 wi...

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 an...

I used tomatoes with herbs. I browned the meat and sauteed the vegetables too. Next time I will throw in the vegetables raw. I slow cooked it on high for 3 hrs. The end result was terrific. My f...

I didn't think this would be that good, but I had everything on hand and love crockpot meals, so I gave it a whirl. We all loved it!! I didn't have time to do the browning so I skipped that pa...
