Slow Cooked Swiss Steak Recipe

Slow Cooked Swiss Steak Recipe


  • Cubed steak
  • Seasoned flour (flour mixed with salt, pepper, and any preferred herbs)
  • Butter
  • Green bell pepper, sliced
  • Red bell pepper, sliced
  • Yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 cans (28 oz each) Italian-seasoned crushed tomatoes
  • Mashed potatoes (for serving)

For Gravy:

  • Cornstarch
  • Water


  1. Prepare Cubed Steak:
    • Dredge cubed steak in seasoned flour, ensuring each piece is well-coated.
  2. Brown the Steak:
    • In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Quickly brown the cubed steak on both sides. This step helps seal in the flavors.
  3. Prepare Vegetables:
    • Slice the green and red bell peppers, as well as the yellow onion.
  4. Layer Ingredients in Crockpot:
    • Begin by placing a layer of Italian-seasoned crushed tomatoes at the bottom of the crockpot.
    • Add a layer of the browned cubed steak on top of the tomatoes.
    • Follow with layers of sliced bell peppers and onions.
    • Repeat the layering process until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of tomatoes on top.
  5. Cook Low and Slow:
    • Cover the crockpot and cook on low for approximately 8 hours. The slow cooking allows the flavors to meld, resulting in tender and flavorful Swiss steak.
  6. Prepare Mashed Potatoes:
    • While the Swiss steak is cooking, prepare mashed potatoes to serve as a delicious side.
  7. Make Gravy:
    • About an hour before the Swiss steak is done, mix cornstarch with water to create a slurry. Add this mixture to the crockpot, stirring gently to thicken the gravy.
  8. Serve:
    • Once cooked, serve the Swiss steak over a bed of mashed potatoes, allowing the rich gravy to enhance the flavors.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Sit back, relax, and enjoy this comforting and hearty slow-cooked Swiss steak with your favorite side of mashed potatoes.
