Today I’m going back to my slow cooker to cook a delicious meal without spending hours in the kitchen. If you’ve never heard of swiss steak, it is a recipe that has been around for decades. Swiss steak is made by braising, or slow-cooking a tougher cut of meat like round steak. The meat is traditionally tenderized by pounding with a mallet before slow cooking. My mother always used cubed steak which does not need pounding. My recipe calls for cubed steak, but pounded round steak is great too. First we’ll brown the meat and then add it to the crock pot with sauteed vegetables to simmer and make a mouth-watering tomato sauce. You can adjust the vegetables to meet your family’s needs.
