Looking for: Tomato Based Swiss Steak

topic posted Thu, January 26, 2006 - 2:17 PM by  Kimberly
I had a swiss steak (I think it was?) recipe when I was younger that I loved and I'm sort of craving it. I think most swiss steak recipes are creamy, this one was tomatoey. Things I remember about it: Used cubed steak, obviously a tomato sauce, and there was green peppers in it. Tasted like it was slow cooked-- meat was really tender.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? Am I thinking or something else?

  • I found this one, does it look familiar? It does not have peppers in it, but you could add them:

    Herb Swiss Steak
    1 1/2 pounds round steak, 1/2-inch thick
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    salt and pepper
    1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
    1 medium onion, quartered and sliced thinly
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 teaspoon ground marjoram
    dash thyme
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    In a large heavy skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cut beef into 6 serving-size pieces then pound with pointed side of meat mallet to tenderize and flatten slightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brown in oil until browned.
    Pour off excess fat. Add remaining ingredients and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until meat is fork-tender. Check frequently and add water or beef broth if necessary. Serves 6.
    • oooh oooh! How about this one?
