Slow Cooker Swiss Steak!!!

About 2 weeks ago while at Cracker Barrel for dinner, I picked up a Slow Cooking Cookbook from Gooseberry Patch. Little did I know that I was about to embark on this love affair with ANY cookbooks printed by this store. I'm not kidding, yesterday I went by and picked up yet another 3 packed with amazing recipes which I'm sure I'll be trying and sharing with you all.

In the meantime, if you read my Menu Plan for this week, you know that it's all about Slow Cooking, trying a ton of new recipes from the new book. So here we go, right now I have a heavenly smelling Swiss Steak cooking away......I'm not stingy at all, so I decided what good is it of me to tell you about it if I don't share the recipe too???

Let me know if you try it, I'll come back and give a review once we've had dinner.

Gooseberry Patch "Slow Cooker Recipes"

2 lbs. boneless beef round steak, cut into 6 serving pieces
1.1-oz pkg. beefy onion soup mix
3 c. onion, sliced
28-oz. can diced tomatoes
3 T. all-purpose flour
1 c. water

Arrange steak in a slow cooker. Sprinkle soup mix over steaks; arrange onion slices all around. Top with tomatoes. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours, or on high setting for 6 hours. Remove steak and vegetables from slow cooker; set aside. Mix together flour and water; add to slow cooker and stir until thickened. Spoon gravy over steak to serve. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Add zest to a soup or stew recipe....easy! Just choose a seasoned variety of canned diced tomatoes like Italian or Mexican.


  1. Your blog is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by mine to say hello and yes the Veggie burgers were great. A little messy to make into patties, but my daughter-in-love dropped them with a spoon and then shaped them. That way we didn't lose a bit of the good stuff. I'm going to try your Swiss Steak.. soon.

  2. My mouth is watering. I'm saving this one to favorites for sure! My dh would LOVE to have this! I'm going to cross fingers that I can find a good price on round steak this week!


  3. Sandra,
    The Slow cooker swiss steak sounds awesome.... I have been flipping back and forth as to buy the new slow cooker cook book from Gooseberry patch. I have approxiamately 10 of their cookbooks and love them; but was a bit hesitant on the slow cooker for some reason. What are your thoughts on the book? I was looking mostly for main dishes...thanks!
