Slow Cooker Swiss Steak
Swiss Steak is a hardy down home meal that sticks to your ribs and is perfect for a chilly week night. Especially this version, since you can throw it in the crockpot before you head off to work.
2.5 pounds Round Steak
1/2 Cup Flour (GF will work for this)
1/4 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
4 Tablespoons Cooking Oil
1 (10.5 oz) Can Beef Broth
2 (14.5 oz) Cans Diced Tomatoes
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 Cup Diced Onion (diced)
1 Green Bell Pepper (diced)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
Put 4 tablespoons of oil in a skillet and heat over medium high heat.
On a large plate, combine flour (or GF mix), salt & pepper, mix together.
Coat steaks in flour mixture. Do NOT Discard mixture.
Add carefully to hot pan, and sear both sides of the meat.
Put meat in crockpot.
Pour remaining flour mixture over meat.
Add beef broth to the skillet and deglaze, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen all the tasty bits.
Pour broth over meat in crockpot.
Add remaining ingredients.
Put lid on crockpot.
Cook on low for 7 hours, or high for 4 hours.
I served my Swiss Steak over creamy Polenta with a side of French Style Green Beans, but you can serve yours on potatoes, rice, pasta, whatever strikes your fancy.
