Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Submitted by: PSYCHEDOUT

Introduction

Just like Grandma used to make, she always served this over mashed potatoes with steamed green beans or a tossed salad. Mmmm comfort food! Just like Grandma used to make, she always served this over mashed potatoes with steamed green beans or a tossed salad. Mmmm comfort food!
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1.5 Lbs Beef Round Steak
    2 Cans Stewed Tomatoes
    1 Envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
    1 Medium Onion Sliced
    Salt and Pepper

Directions

Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper, give it a real good pounding with a meat mallet or the back of a knife. Place in bottom of slow cooker, top with remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over hot cooked rice or mashed potatoes (not included in calorie count).

*If you have the time dredge the steaks in flour and brown slightly before placing in the slow cooker, adds a lot of flavor but not a necessary step (this would up the fat content as you would need some vege or olive oil).

    I actually make almost the same exact recipe, but use half the Onion Soup mix to reduce sodium. A good crockpot tip, place onions (and also root veggies as a rule) on bottom of crockpot to get more of their flavor throughout the dish! - 12/15/09

    I made this the other night. It was super easy and really good. I served it with mashed potatoes and broccolli. I did not use a whole packet of onion soup mix, just a couple of Tablespoons. I added fresh italian parsley and a crushed garlic clove. I will make this again! - 1/26/09

    Try adding a bag of frozen peas. They taste yummy when they pick up the tomato flavor.

    UPDATE: We made this earlier in the week. The meat was tender enough to cut with a fork. Even the kids loved it. This is a recipe we'll do again. - 5/6/10

  • This recipe was easy and delicious. I pretty much followed the recipe as is, but forgot the onions. I had a slightly smaller round steak but I still used both cans of tomatoes. I thickened the sauce slightly with cornstarch and water then put it all with egg noodles, but used brown rice for me. - 7/17/12

  • Made this today using 2.5 lb. top round steak. So, in addition to a 14 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes, I added a small can of tomato sauce. I also used Mrs. Dash instead of onion soup, and browned the meat prior to putting in crockpot. I always serve my Swiss steak with yellow rice & green beans. - 10/10/10
