Slow Cooker Sloppy Swiss Steak

Directions

  1. Sprinkle both sides of the steak pieces with seasoned salt and paprika. Place the flour in a shallow dish, and thoroughly dredge both sides of the meat with the flour. Pound the meat on both sides with the tenderizing side of a meat mallet, pounding some of the flour into the meat.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown the steaks well on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Layer the steaks in a slow cooker with the green bell pepper and onion strips and carrot. Mix together the diced tomatoes with green chiles, sloppy joe sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and wine, and pour over the steak and vegetables.
  3. Cover the slow cooker, set the temperature to Low, and cook until the steaks are tender and the sauce is thickened and well blended, 8 to 10 hours.

  • Cook's Note
  • You can do most of the prep the night before, making this a very quick dish to put together in the morning. I cut the meat and vegetables and mix the sauce the night before. In the morning I just season, pound and brown the meat; then put everything in the slow cooker.

Doubled the recipe and omitted the browning of the meat. I did season and dredge in flour but added right to the crockpot in layers with the veggies. My only other change was to use white wine since I had no red. Otherwise this smells so good while cooking all day. Served with Seasoned Noodle Mix from this site and and Grandmothers Buttermilk Cornbread from this site. Kids loved it!

This was just alright. It tasted kind of like a spicy roast. Also, you can use any cheap cut of meat in this recipe, it cooks so long, its all going to fall apart anyway.

I've now made 2 Swiss steak recipes from this site and liked the other one better although this one is still good. I served mine over white rice but it would go really good over some mashed potatoes too :) Thanks!

This was really good, my 5 and 3 year old ate it up and they're picky. I didn't have bell pepper or the sloppy joe mix, so I used a couple cans of tomato sauce and extra worcestershire, oh yeah I didn't have red wine either. But still was excellent,can't wait when I make this again with all the ingredients.

I, too, skipped the browning part. I didn't have Sloppy Joe sauce, so I used a small can of tomato sauce and an equal amount of BBQ sauce. Added a squirt of Tabasco and some soy sauce. I used a frozen bag of carrot medallions, and both the steak and carrots were frozen when I started the Crockpot. Came home to a yummy dish we served over rice!

Did not use the slow cooker, was in a hurry and used ground beef. Next time I'll add soy sauce on the table...this was very good.

Great!!! Had a small roast on hand, sliced it into 3 thin steaks, followed directions for tenderizing & browning the meat. I didn't have paprika, so I used garlic powder. From there, I just used what I had on hand... No rotel,so used oriental hot chili sauce (squirted less than 1/4 cup into the crock pot, it made it so HOT that I then sprinkled {?} maybe a tablespoon (or more?)of white sugar all over ingredients. I usually use brown sugar to cut heat in a dish, but was out of that. If you have to do that, go carefully with the sugar because you can always add more, but too much will ruin a dish. The final result was a perfect blend of hot and... not sweet, but just right! added 2 coarsly chopd roma tomatoes, Didn't have onions or bell peppers, so added about 1 1/2 cups chopped celery to the pot. Used the whole can of manwich cuz what am I gonna do with 1/2 can of leftover manwich? Didn't have red wine, splashed in some red wine vinegar and worsterchire sauce, didn't measure anything so these are all "guesstimates". I did have some baby carrots that I used, they gave a nice texture to the dish. I needed to use up some instant mashed potatoes and this dish was perfect for that. Served this dish on top of the potatoes and since this dish was so spicy and flavorful, I didn't mind the potatoes being instant. I admit, I am a potato snob! That is why this box of instant potatoes had been in the pantry forever, cuz I love fresh mashed potatoes! Will definately make again!Yum:)
