I made this Swiss Steak for dinner last night. My husband made the mashed potatoes…he makes the best mashed potatoes, with milk, butter, a little cream cheese, salt, pepper…Mmm!
I usually use round steak, but we found a piece of top sirloin on sale that was big enough to make two meals…Swiss steak and the beef filling for my husband’s Beef Burritos.
Swiss Steak is so easy to make. You can cook it in a crock pot, but I like to slow cook it on the stove. Here’s how I made it.
2 Round/sirloin steaks
Salt and pepper
1 -14 oz. can Stewed tomatoes (whole or diced)
Minced garlic – I use minced garlic in a jar
1. Heat a large skillet with some vegetable oil in it.
5. Fry until steaks are browned on both side. Remove excess oil from pan with paper towels if needed.
6. Add stewed tomatoes, onion slices, and minced garlic and mix together. If you use whole tomatoes you can chop them before adding them to the skillet if you want smaller pieces.
7. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 – 2 hours until the steaks are tender. Every half hour or so, I stirred it, turned the steaks, and broke up the tomatoes with the back of my spoon.
That’s all there is to it. When it’s done, the steaks are nice and tender and the sauce is thick and wonderful served over mashed potatoes. Add a green vegetable and butter bread and you’ve got a meal that’s sure to please everyone.
