Swiss Steak Supper (Crock Pot)

"One of my favorite crock pot recipes. Great for cold winter nights when the days are short and the nights are long dark and cold! Warms you from the inside out! From This note is on the website with this recipe: Note: "This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.""

    At first I was worried about it being too runny with undrained tomatoes and gravy, but it was great to mop up with bread! I used a herb diced tomatoes and mushroom gravy.

    I really liked the sound of this recipe but my family and I found it quite bland. It was edible but not something that I will make again.

    great crock pot meal. Made as directed, quick and easy great for rv travel since there is little prep involved. Made for holiday tag. Will certainly make again.
    Good meal for a cool night. Here is CA it is warm out but it is still a nice to have a warm meal. DH enjoyed this & said it was flavorful. We couldn't find new potatoes at the two stores in our area so we used baby dutch yellow potatoes. They were terrific and tiny so no need to cut up. Otherwise it was as written. The slow cooker I used has bottom and side elements and it cooked for 8 hours but wasn't completely tender. I think different slow cookers cook differently so watch it as it gets to the end. Thanks for sharing Sarabeth. Enjoy. ChefDLH

    Awesome recipe! I made exactly as stated. The only thing I would do is cut the potatoes smaller. They could have been cooked a little longer even though I set my crockpot on low for 8 hours. Thanks for sharing!
