  • Cut round steak into 6 serving size pieces.
  • On a cutting board, dredge pieces with flour, salt and pepper.
  • Pound flour into the meat with a meat mallet.
  • Turn pieces, dredge, and pound until they can't hold any more flour.
  • (This can be a messy process, so be warned!).
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil and brown steak pieces on both sides.
  • Place in a covered casserole.
  • Add onions and garlic to the skillet.
  • Saute until onions are limp (5 minutes).
  • Place onions and garlic over steak pieces in casserole dish.
  • Add enough beef broth to barely cover meat.
  • The flour from the meat will thicken the broth as it bakes and will make its own gravy.
  • Bake at 300F for 2 hours or until fork-tender.
  • Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes.

    My family has made this your years and just a little different. We don't use garlic and we make a gravy out of the broth before we pour it all over the meat, then cook. This was you have gravy for your potatoes..

    I was looking for a Swiss steak recipe that was like what my mother made when I was a child. I was glad to see this one didn't have tomatoes. It's a great recipe - thank you for bringing back a little of my childhood!

    Can this recipe be used for venison steaks? Is there any additional prep work?

    I tried this today and it came out great. I pounded the steak first, seasoned it with Goya Adobo seasoned salt and onion powder, i also added both to the flour. I wasn't sure if it was to cook covered or uncovered so I cooked it uncovered. I noticed that the "gravy" was almost all dried up and gummy after an hour of cooking. I took the steak out, added more water and used a hand blender made gravy and cooked for an additional hour. Came out great! Next time I'll cover the pan to ensure the liquid doesn't evaporate too quickly.
