Crockpot swiss steak

Whenever we are craving comfort food, I make this delicious Crockpot Swiss Steak. It has the best combination of flavors and tastes amazing. The tomato, onions and bell peppers give the beef such wonderful flavor.

Everything is slow cooked to perfection. You can use a cheaper cut of meat and still have the best meal. It tastes like the sort of meal you would have for Sunday dinner but it’s easy enough for weeknights.

Why is it called swiss steak?

Swiss steak is a tougher cut of meat that is cooked for an extended amount of time and braised or cooked until tender. It refers to the process of making these tough cuts of meat tender.

Can I use a different cut of meat?

The recipe calls for round steak but you can use beef chuck steak as well. Really any type of inexpensive steak will work.

Can you over cook meat in a slow cooker?

Yes. Cooking meat too long can cause it to become tough and have the opposite effect. You want to cook it long enough to make it tender but not so long that it gets tough.

Can you put raw steak in a slow cooker?

You certainly can. This is another way that the crock pot helps to save time and make dinner easy.

Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan on medium high heat.  Cook the steaks on each sides until slightly brown (approximately 3-5 minutes on each side).

If you have a Ninja cooker, you can just do everything in the same pot. We love these because you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.

Next, transfer the steaks to the crock pot if you are using a skillet.

Tips for crockpot swiss steak recipe:

This meal is delicious served over mashed potatoes. This easy crock pot mashed potatoes recipe is creamy and delicious.

We have also served it over rice and it was just as yummy. You can make this meal even easier when you learn how to freeze rice.  It is so handy to just grab the rice from the freezer for meals like this one.

Schedules are crazy around here so anything I can do to save time I am all for.

We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. If you are not freezing rice, it is a great time saving trick.

You can use stewed tomatoes instead of diced and the beef broth will combine into so much flavor. If you like salisbury steak with mushroom soup, this swiss steak recipe will definitely be a hit.

Make sure you have a good slow cooker to make this crockpot swiss steak.

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

Make dinner time even easier and use the crock pot liners. Trust me.

    This recipe is awesome! I used both beef steak and pork steak. We had NO leftovers and I was asked to make it again! I used two 10 ounce cans of Rotel and one 10 ounce can of petite diced tomatoes. (I’m from Louisiana). It was magnifico! ?

  4. This is my husband’s favorite recipe. He would have me make it twice a month, but I won’t. The few times I did make it, he ate it for 3 days in a row, it he usually doesn’t like leftover.

    This is my husband’s favorite recipe. He would me make this every two weeks, but I make it once a month. He even eats leftover for 2 or 3 days and he is a person who doesn’t like leftover
