Slow Cooker Swiss Steak


"I threw this together in my crock pot one day and we loved it! A little time consuming because I sauteed the vegetables and browned the meat first, but it's well worth it. Browning the meat first gives it a better flavor. This is great with mashed potatoes!"

I was eager to try this recipe to use up a round steak I had in the freezer. It was certainly edible but "blah," and the meat stayed very tough even after 9 hours. It's too bad because I really ...

I have never made swiss steak before and thought it might just be an "alright" meal. I was surprised at how easy is was. I did make some changes based on my families likes. Instead of carrots an...

This was great. I did add fresh mushrooms and half a green pepper. I also just sliced baby carrots in half. I did brown the meat and not the veggies. Then I poured between 1/4 and 1/2 a cup ...

One of the reviews left out the celery and onion. And replaced them with mushrooms and garlic. I used that version of the recipe and added 2 small cans of mushrooms and a teaspoon of garlic. ...

I used tomatoes with herbs. I browned the meat and sauteed the vegetables too. Next time I will throw in the vegetables raw. I slow cooked it on high for 3 hrs. The end result was terrific. My f...

I didn't think this would be that good, but I had everything on hand and love crockpot meals, so I gave it a whirl. We all loved it!! I didn't have time to do the browning so I skipped that pa...

I had to give this recipe 5 stars. My kids, who are very fussy eaters love it and want it all of the time, which is great, it has meat, vegies, all of that healthy stuff. What more could I ask f...

Great recipe! I can't believe how tender the meat comes out this way (I usually make a round steak recipe that my mom always made, and it's definitely not as good. . .). I put this in the croc...
