"My mother has been making this Swiss steak for years. It is wonderful, and can be made either on the stove top or -- when you don't have a lot of time but want a hearty meal ready when you come home -- in the crock pot. Serve over a bed of egg noodles or rice with a hunk of thick crusty bread."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Dredge steak strips in flour. Working in batches, place strips in hot oil. Fry until browned on both sides. Remove to a warm platter. When all meat is browned, return meat to Dutch oven, and stir in onions, mushrooms, salt, pepper, gravy mix, and stewed tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 30 to 45 minutes.
  2. About 20 minutes before steak is finished, fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
  3. Serve Swiss steak over noodles.


  • Notes
  • Can be made in the crock pot. Just brown meat as instructions indicate, add ingredients to crock pot, and cook on Low all day.
  • If you can't find 'cubed steak,' just hand the butcher in your grocery store a package of round steaks and ask him to cube them for you.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I loved this. The only thing I did differently was to cook it all in the crock pot and it was delicious! The meat got really tender and the flavor was great.

Not like my mom used to make at all. Kids and husband ate it, but I guess they were expecting something different. Kind of looked like a mess on the plate. I did try this twice and had the same ...

I thought I would never like Swiss Steak, but my husband said it was a favorite of his so I thought I would give it a try ---- *****JACKPOT*****!!!!! This was wonderful.....Thanks Helene!!!

This was a great recipe for Swiss Steak. I love cooking with wine, so I added 1/2 cup of Burgundy and thought it added a lot. Also, I had to simmer mine for just over an hour until the meat wa...

Very good recipe...the whole family liked it, and that is rare to find around here..

Easy and delicious. One of those "stuff your face until you pop" meals. I make homemade mashed potatoes instead of noodles and make a pile on the plate, stack the steak on top and then pour the ...

This recipe was absolutely delicious. I used some red wine to deglaze the pan and also to the sauce because my family loves gravy.....

This had great flavor and was easy to prepare. It has a real comfort food feel. I made it on a weeknight after work, and we still ate at a reasonable time! I used diced tomatoes instead of stewe...
