old fashioned swiss steak..one of my favorite comfort foods! I made this last nite for dinner and it was to die for! I also added celery to the sauce and carrots the last hour and sliced mushrooms the last 1/2 hour....served with mashed potatoes and homemade cornbread....it was to die for!
Slow Cooker Swiss Steak. The original 1974 [not 1975] Rival Crock-Pot recipes called for 2-2/12 lbs. of round steak, a package of onion soup mix, 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes, and 2 cups of water. 8 hours on low. For a brown instead of red steak, substitute cream of mushroom soup for the tomatoes and a package of brown gravy mix for the onion soup mix. Both are easy and excellent. The 1975 Rival Crock- Pot version is totally different with carrots and celery and no soup mix.
This recipe has been used and loved for many years in my family. The meat comes out so very tender! My husband, who a real hearty meat & potatoes man absolutely loves this. This makes its own gravy to serve over the meat and with mashed potatoes or rice.
This weeknight-fast Swiss steak recipe is made on the stovetop in just 30 minutes (traditional Swiss steak braises in the oven for an hour or more). This was pretty tasty but the hubby didn't care for the veggies on top. I'm calling it a
Swiss Steak - quick, easy and delicious! (I did this in my electric skillet on low, cooking all ingredients in the electric skillet and avoided the mess of multiple pans and heating the house up with the oven for 2 hrs.)
Swiss steak has been around for a long time. It was one of the first meals I cooked for my husband, and is still one of his favorites. I have enjoyed "tweaking" the old recipe now and then. Today, I added the Golden Mushroom Soup and dry Italian Dressing. Delicious!
