After reading several recipes for traditional Swiss Steak, I made up this version from things I had on hand. DH really liked it and said it was "a keeper".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Mix flour with seasoning salt to your taste, then dredge steaks in flour and pound with meat hammer or edge of plate to incorporate flour into steaks.
  2. 2. Heat olive oil in heavy skillet and brown the steaks to seal in juices.
  3. 3. Place sliced onion in bottom of 5-6 qt slow cooker.
  4. 4. Place browned steaks over the onions.
  5. 5. Mix together remaining ingredients, EXCEPT potato starch flour, and pour the mixture over the meat.
  6. 6. Cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or until meat is fork tender.
  7. 7. Remove meat from slow cooker and set aside.
  8. 8. Mix potato starch flour with about 1/4 cup water then slowly stir into the liquids in the slow cooker until thickened. Return meat to cooker to keep warm.

Made this for dinner and loved that it went together so easy and was able to throw it in the crock-pot and forget it until it was done. The house smelled wonderful as it cooked. Served over steamed rice. I followed the recipe exactly with the minor exception of adding mushrooms at DH's request. Enjoyed the ease, clear directions and taste - a true comfort dish.
