Swiss Steak for Two Recipe

Even though I'm a widow, I still cook for two since I frequently have a friend or grandchild join me for lunch or dinner. This is a hearty main dish that gets great flavor and color from tomatoes, green pepper and onion.—Mildred Stubbs, Rockingham, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 70 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 pound boneless beef round steak (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced


  • 1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cut steak into two pieces; place in bag and shake to coat.
  • 2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown steak in oil. Add tomatoes. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 40 minutes. Add green pepper, onion and remaining salt. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 30 minutes. Yield: 2 servings.

"This is a very tasty and quick dish! I usually have the market run the meat thru the cuber to make the meat less tough."

"Just made last night. Absolutely delicious and tender. I did cook longer than stated just to make sure that the round steak was tender, since it is a tough cut of meat. The flavor is great."
