Not being a big beef-lover, I don't understand why but, about once a year, I have a craving for Swiss steak. I found this recipe several years ago and thought I had always cooked it in a crock pot (it is mentioned at the end of the recipe but doesn't list cooking times), but this time I did it on the stovetop.
It's another easy recipe with limited ingredients. I like mine with mashed potatoes to sop up the delicious juices.
SWISS STEAK (4 servings)
1-1 1/2 pounds cubed steak
1 tsp garlic powder
AP flour for dusting
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp minced fresh garlic
1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 medium onion, cut into strips
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips
Cut steak into serving-sized pieces. Season to taste with garlic powder and S&P. Dust meat with flour. In heavy skillet, brown both sides of meat in vegetable oil.
Transfer to a 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 one to 1 1/2 hours adding water if necessary to keep meat partially covered. Season, to taste, with additional S&P.
NOTE: 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.
