Earlier this week I busted out the crockpot to make a delicious recipe my mom came up with for Swiss Steak. Now, I know this isn’t technically Swiss Steak, but it’s about a million times easier than all the pounding, and battering, and actual cooking required for actual Swiss Steak and all the flavors are still here. My mom made this in the oven but I decided to make my life super easy and just throw everything in the crockpot so I would have a nice hot dinner waiting for me when I got home. Dust off your crockpot and get ready for savory, tangy, Swiss Steak with peppers and onions.
First chop up some onions and bell peppers (as you can see I used red but really any color is fine).
Crush up some canned whole tomatoes and put them in a crockpot with some beef broth. Splash in some Worcestershire (thank goodness for spell check because I can literally NEVER remember how to spell Worcestershire) sauce.
Stir in the peppers and onion.
Toss in some garlic.
I put the above ingredients in the crockpot in the fridge the night before so I had less to do the morning of. Before I left for work I added the London broil and made sure t was covered in broth and veggies, then turned the crockpot on low. When I got home I put some potatoes in the oven and then served up the delicious beef and veggies with a baked potato and sour cream (because, duh)! The broth was tangy and flavorful, the beef was falling apart and tender and the sour cream made the broth nice and creamy.
My mom said she served hers with mashed potatoes, but baked potatoes were easier! I also think it would be delicious served over rice or egg noodles, use your imagination and enjoy!
