Would the steak have more flavor if you put it in the bottom of the slow cooker?

Yay - another yummy meal made in our new slow cooker! An much loved aunt used to make me Swiss Steak whenever I visited so I was thrilled to find this recipe. The family enjoyed it and because it's easy to prepare the dish it is perfect for any busy parent.

Yum, this was amazing! So flavorful!

This steak was juicy and tender! I can't believe it came from a slow cooker!

Holy cow, I'd never had Swiss steak but this made me a believer. It's SO tender!

Recipes like this were made for the crockpot! I love my crockpot! Its a magical invention. You can also use a Dutch oven to slow roast the steaks or if you dont have a crockpot or Dutch oven you could cook them on the stove top in a tightly covered pan on low heat for about 2 hours.

I love swiss steak. My mother used to make it once a week when I was growing up. We used to have it with mashed potatoes and garden canned green beans. I have been trying to find a recipe just hers. I almost gave up when I found this recipe. It is just like hers except for the bell peppers. I omitted those and added celery. It is a delicious recipe!

Any one who knows me, knows that I Love simple recipes that deliver big flavor. This Melt in Your Mouth Slow Cooked Swiss Steak recipe does just that. Simple ingredients slow cooked all in one pot so the flavors blend perfectly. I like serving it over egg noodles with crispy bread on the side.

I remember my mother making swiss steak when I was growing up, and it was always tasty. She did include the optional step that's given about giving the steaks a thin coating of flour and a brief searing prior to putting them in the slow cooker, and that's the way I remember them. We always served them with mashed potatoes, but rice and noodles are both good substitutes.

This is a simple old-fashioned recipe that I never think to make and I know my family will love it. We would have it with mashed potatoes and green beans or corn. I will make it next week so I can have it ready in the slow cooker one night at the end of a work day.

Swiss steaks are something I have always wanted to try, but for some silly reason, I never have gotten around to it. This recipe is so simple that it makes me want to go out and buy the stuff for it for dinner tonight. Thanks for showing off how easy it can be to make this dinner.

Seeing this recipe reminded me that my mother used to make swiss steak when I was growing up something that Id completely forgotten so I made this yesterday and it is exactly as I remember it! Delicious! The only change I made was to substitute the canned tomatoes with fresh ones from my veggie garden plus 25ml of tomato paste and, as I dont have a slow cooker, I baked the dish very slowly at a fairly low oven setting. The family absolutely loved it and Ill definitely be making it again.

I love this recipe. I have never tried it with diced tomatoes. I have always baked mine in the oven with either a can of tomato soup with a half of a can or a can of water or two cans of tomato sauce and serve it over mashed potatoes.
