Crockpot Swiss steak is one of those rich, hearty, meaty dinner recipes that has stood the test of time!Tender beef steaks are cooked in a rich tomato brown gravy with veggies. This recipe is perfect over mashed potatoes or egg noodles! Swissed’ means to roll or pound the meat, tenderizing it so it cooks up tender just like the veggies! This version of swiss steaks cooks in the slow cooker for the perfect set it and forget it meal.
Much like the beef in a stew recipe, these steaks become fork tender by cooking low and slow. This recipe freezes and reheats well.
Delicious and easy Swiss steak recipe that will have you out of the kitchen in under 20 minutes. I love to pair this with egg noodles or rice, being sure to get a good spoonful of sauce along with the steak. Feel free to add celery, green pepper, carrots, or your favorite vegetable. My husband isn’t a fan of celery or green pepper, so I keep my Swiss steak simple.”
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds cube steak
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons ground paprika
2 teaspoons ground thyme
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Mix flour, salt, mustard, and pepper together in a wide, shallow bowl.
Dredge cube steaks in the flour mixture to coat completely.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry steaks until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a slow cooker, reserving drippings in the skillet.
Saute onion and garlic in the reserved drippings in the skillet until softened, 2 to 3 minutes more; add to the slow cooker. Discard the oil.
Stir beef broth and tomato paste together in a bowl until the paste dissolves into the broth; add tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, thyme, and oregano. Pour the broth mixture over the steaks in the slow cooker.
Cook on Low until the meat is tender to the point of falling apart, 6 to 8 hours.
