Swiss Steak


Did you ever think to yourself - it has been a while since I've made that?  That happened to me the other day.  I thought to myself I haven't made Swiss steak in a very long time.  Why?  I did not know.  It is very easy to prepare, is a satisfying meal, and the family eats it up.

 So yesterday's dinner was delicious Swiss Steak with potatoes, carrots, and onions all cooked in my Crock Pot. So simple.  I just  seasoned and browned my round steak before I put it in the crock pot with the veggies.  Poured some tomatoes sauce over the meat and veggies and let the meal cook for about 8 hours.  Once the steak was done,  it was ready to serve.


As the family sat down for dinner, they asked why I didn't make this more ofter.  Enough said - I have included this recipe in my to go to  for a busy day easy meal file.
