Swiss Steak

We have been eating lots of garden veggies at our house the last two weeks. My son requested requested something with MEAT. This recipe was a compromise ,we used garden peppers and onions, I also added some fresh corn. This recipe fit the requests perfectly.

  • 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


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.
