  • Cook's Notes:
  • Also, if you're in a time crunch or just feeling lazy, you can throw the whole round steak in the crock without browning. It will just need to cook longer, about 6 hours on High.
  • If desired, cook 8 hours on Low.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This is a yummy recipe. Only one issue I had with it is that my husband and I like our steak cooked medium to medium rare so just keep that in mind when preparing the steaks. I realized this too late and let the steaks cook in the pan like I normally would; however, once they were then in the crockpot they cooked to well done. It was still really good - the meat was just cooked a lot more than we like it to be.

I was really hoping that this would be great, but I felt it was bland. It wasn't horrible, just not my thing I guess. I won't be making it again.

Absolutely delicious! My family gobbled it up in no time flat and has asked for it to be part of our regular rotation.

I made this recipe and loved it. I cannot cook without tweaking things so I used a can of mushroom soup and a can of beefy mushroom instead of using the cheese soup. Added mushrooms, Lawry's seasoning and my family loved it :D

My youngest son is 2 1/2 and had low iron levels. His doctor said he needed to ear more meat. Easier said than one. He hates meat only eats carbs. So I came across this recipe and to my surprise he are every last bite and wanted more! My mom had it too and asked for the recipe. It is super yummy and kid approved! I make it every chance I get.

The entire family loved this! Actually going to double this for the next time so we have enough!! Highly recommend. Its great for the ones who do not like tomato flavored Swiss steak!

This is easy and delicious! I add more garlic (either fresh or powdered) and a little seasoning salt. Also, it does not need to cook for 6 hrs on High...3-4 hours is plenty if you have browned it first. Yum, yum!
