Slow-Cooked Swiss Steak

I love the Fall and Winter months when you can have yummy things cooking in your crockpot all day, making the house smell delightful.  I also love having dinners like this on days when I am busy in the afternoon.  I can come home, cook some noodles and veggies and dinner is ready to go.   This is an old family favorite of ours.  The meat is SO tender, with great flavor.  We love it!

I like it served over pasta.  

Slow-Cooked Swiss Steak

From Lion House Lite Recipes

2 TBSP vegetable oil

1 ½ lbs. boneless beef top round steak, cut into 6-8 serving pieces

¼ c flour

1 can (14 ½ oz) diced canned tomatoes, undrained

1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce

1 c chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp sugar

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

½ c cold water

1 TBSP cornstarch

Heat oil in a large frying pan. Dredge beef pieces in flour and brown slowly in oil. Place browned meat in a slow cooker. Combine tomatoes with liquid, tomato sauce, onions, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper, and pour over beef. Cover and cook on low setting for 5-6 hours or until meat is tender. Blend the cold water and cornstarch until smooth; stir into liquid in slow cooker and cook on high setting, stirring constantly, until thickened. Makes 6-8 servings.
