After a search on Allrecipes for Swiss steak resulted in 16 similar recipes, I decided I wanted to create something unique. It may be a stretch to call my creation 'Swiss,' but the result was a meal the whole family liked. Even my picky 4- and 7-year-old boys ate a large portion of it!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

This is a keeper the only change i made is to omit the carrots (i don't like cooked carrots only raw). unfortunately i found out at last minute that i was out of rotel and had to substitute a can of whole tomatoes which made it a little bland this time but next time i make it i will be sure to have rotel on hand.

I really liked this recipe. I did take the time to flour the meat and brown it first and I think that might be why it was so good. It took me a while to find the right meat-there are so many types of round steak. Finally found the right one, not too thin. Very tender and flavorful. Served on rice. Read More
