Round Steak and Gravy II

Rating: 4.5 stars 308
Super tender, use a thin cut of round steak for better flavor! Extremely tasty, as it makes its own gravy.

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Rating: 4.5 stars 332
This isn't traditional Sauerbraten, but a great, easy substitute using round steak. My mom made this dish when I was a kid. I started making it when my kids were young, and we all love it!! Try serving over buttered noodles. If your crew is really hungry, then double the recipe. The single recipe is never enough for my family of four.

Steak Parmesan

Rating: 4 stars 58
Here's a fairly simple recipe for something different to do with cubed steak. It involves breading meat with bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese, then combining it with your favorite spaghetti sauce. Serve over pasta with additional cheese. A real family pleaser!

Eye of Round Steak and Ketchup

Round steak simmered in ketchup and onions makes a great gravy to spoon over mashed potatoes. This was a family favorite when I was a kid.

Smothered Round Steak with Gravy

Rating: 5 stars 11
This is one of the first recipes I learned to cook when I was a teenager. Mom taught me to cook over the phone, after I got home from school every day. She was working and I didn't think about it at the time, but later I realized my calls were reassuring to her, since she knew I was safely home. Even when Mom told me how to do it, I nearly always tweaked it! Most of the time, it turned out okay. Mashed potatoes and biscuits are perfect with this, along with a vegetable.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Rating: 4 stars 464
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!

My Mother's Swiss Steak

My mother's recipe. Serve with potatoes, rice, or noodles.

Round Steak and Gravy

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
The meat is so tender and moist and the gravy is so flavorful. Instead of baking it in the oven, I use my pressure cooker. This is wonderful with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.

Instant Pot® Swiss Steak
Rating: 5 stars 14

Bottom round steak and a few kitchen staples is comfort food. When the leaves start to fall and the temperatures drop it's time for something hearty. I've used bottom round but any tough, lean cut of beef will work. Serve over noodles or rice to soak up all of that great sauce.
