Swiss steak with round steak and stewed tomatoes, a family favorite.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds round steak about 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 can (about 14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Place steak on a clean board or similar work/cutting surface. Sprinkle steak with about half of the bread crumb mixture and pound into the steak with a meat mallet. Repeat on other side of round steak then cut into 4 to 6 pieces.
  2. In a large Dutch oven or large deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter or margarine. When hot, add steak; brown on both sides. Add tomatoes, onion, chopped celery, chopped green bell peppers, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 2 hours, or until Swiss steak is tender.
