I started this recipe on the stove top, browned the beef and onions and then transferred it to a crock pot. After 6 hours dinner was ready, the whole house smelled like an Italian Restaurant. I served it on spiral pasta; this is a delicious, stick to your ribs stew and sooo convenient! I did sub mushrooms for the green peppers. Made and reviewed for the MizzNezz cookathon. Get well soon, MizzNezz!

I tried this and the recipe was excellent. My husband and 8 year loved the steak. It was so tender you did not have to use a knife to cut it. I used sirlion steak. I also added 1 cup of beef bullion to the pan for simmering. It added more flover and gave more gravy for the noodles. Probably the best Swiss Steak I ever had.
