Simple Swiss Steak (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by carolbygrace

This is the Swiss Steak my mom used to make. My daughter has her own family now and makes this at home. It is simple and delicious. I've tried adding spices and ingredients to make it 'better', but came to the conclusion that Mom was right, it's perfect just the way it is. Hope you like it.

My family (including a picky toddler) really loved this dish. The only addition that I made was to add a couple sliced bell peppers because that's the way I remember my grandma making it.
