Tender Swiss Steak Recipe

Tender Swiss Steak Recipe

This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I sometimes serve it with white or wild rice. You can also substitute venison for the beef if you like.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 pounds beef top round steak (1 inch thick)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Hot cooked noodles, optional


  • 1. Cut meat into serving-size pieces. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add beef, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  • 2. In a large skillet, brown meat in oil on both sides. Top with onions and celery. Combine the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and oregano; spoon over vegetables. Cover and simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender. Serve with noodles if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
