Reviews for Slow-Cooked Swiss Steak
"This is a keeper for sure!!"
"Flavor was good but dredging did NOT work for me. Had to scrape it off, turned out thick."
"My son and husband are very picky about new recipes, but absolutely loved this one. It was a little tomatoie, so I added packaged au ju and it was perfect' Thank You I also add red potatoes, cut in fourths, placed them over meat in crock-pot. Every thing came out perfect. Might try adding mushrooms next time also."
"I tripled this recipe and used my 7qt crock. Rather than "shake and toss" I had floured each steak and set on top of the bed of onion. I'm picky of the sauce so I tend to use Contadina almost exclusively. On placing the steaks in the crock with the celery, I poured the sauce over the meat and set on medium for about 6.5 hours. Paired with Buttery mashers, this dish was enjoyed by the brothers in the lodge and given a large thumbs up! My family enjoyed the savory aroma and is asking me to make it for them! Thanks!"
"I think this recipe would be great if there were more seasonings, like maybe oregano? It was a little bland for my tastes, and I have a Norwegian palate!"
"family gave this a big thumbs down and I was very disappointed with the flavor of the sauce."
"I added 1/4 head of raw cabbage, chopped to this recipe. also I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used 2, 14 oz. cans of diced tomatoes. Our son, who doesn't like veggies, had 3 helpings of veggie sauce for every piece of steak. will def make again"
"This is in the slow cooker for the second time this week. So good. All I do differently from original recipe is (based on other reviews) to brown pieces of steak first, plus add a generous dash of Worstershire sauce with the tomato sauce, and it's in the slow cooker on High for 4 hours. It is food that goes down very easily ... and stays down. Oh yeah!"
"I read the reviews and love the suggestions... Some say it tastes "like" pot roast... I have pot roast to use and so I'm assuming this would be an ok substitution for the round steak? has more fat, so should be good?? Gonna try tomorrow. I'm adding a rating even though haven't tried yet.... otherwise, won't let me post.."
"Tasty and easy and convenient! Love this!"
"Excellent recipe. I had 1 can of tomato sauce, so I added a good squirt of catsup to make up for the other. Also added a can of stewed tomatoes. This recipe lends itself to making other additions--you could add sliced mushrooms, sliced bell pepper, garlic, etc. Meat is tender and tasty. So EASY!"
"Delicious. Added wide egg noodles at the end before serving."
"I quickly browned the meat, added sliced bell peppers, sodium free garlic and herb seasoning, replaced the tomato sauce with fire roasted diced tomato pureed and a splash of Worstershire sauce......"
"I added a tsp. of ground mustard to make it a little more like my mother's recipe. Delicious and very easy!"
"I have also made this using pork chops, family loved it too."
"Tweaked it a little, but very tender."
"A very simple swiss steak recipe I recently made for a sick friend. Everyone loved it!"
"I doubled this recipe and used a jar of spaghetti sauce for this quick recipe. Super tender and nice rich flavor."
"Great recipe. I add a little beef broth for flavor."
"This meal is a great substitute for pot roast. The grandchildren all say that is what it taste like."
"I used some garlic and onion powder and added a can of diced tomatoes. It turned out very good!!"
"This smelled soooooo GOOD all day as it cooked! It tasted as good as it smelled! Yummy! I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. We ate it over mashed potatoes. I'll definitly make this again."
"I find that if you just highlight what you want printed you save alot of ink and space. Any info about nutrition facts, I just write in what I want to know for reference. It works, especially on this site.Gail"
