Swiss Steak is a perfect family dinner; it’s easy to make and can be cooked either in the oven or in the slow cooker. This dish has delicious tender beef in a rich tomato gravy and is perfect served over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes!
Using a meat mallet, pound meat to 1/2″ thickness.
Combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, pepper & salt to taste. Dredge meat in flour mixture.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat in a dutch oven. Brown steaks on each side (adding additional olive oil if needed). Set aside.
Place onion & carrot in the bottom of the pot. Top with browned steaks.
Add remaining ingredients except cornstarch. Cover and cook for 2.5-3 hours.
Serve over mashed potatoes.
If you’d prefer a thicker tomato gravy, after cooking remove beef from the pot. Combine cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water. Bring liquid in the pot to a boil. Stir in cornstarch slurry and stir until thickened.
