Family Swiss Steak

By fearringtonc

  • 2 tablespoons (18 g) unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) crushed dried thyme

  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) sweet paprika

  • 1 1/2 pounds (720 g) boneless beef round steak, cut 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce

  • canola oil cooking spray

  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 2 medium celery ribs, thinly sliced

  • 2 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 4 medium plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) reduced-sodium canned beef broth

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, thyme, and paprika. Using a pastry brush, brush steak pieces with Worcestershire sauce. Dredge in flour mixture.

  2. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place on stove over medium-high heat. Add steak pieces and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.

  3. Transfer steak pieces to a 3-quart (3-liter) or larger crockery slow cook. Top with garlic slices, celery, onions, and tomatoes. Pour beef broth over the top. Do not stir.

  4. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.

  5. To serve, transfer steak pieces and vegetables to a heated serving platter. Spoon any pan juices over the top and serve at once.

This an excellent recipe with just the right kind of spices to make it taste wonderful. The thyme will really bring out that wonderful beef flavor. This recipe gives us a great amount of protein. 2009-07-04 19:46:40 -0500 Report
