The Cooking Process: A Symphony of Flavors


Now that we have our ingredients ready, it’s time to dive into the cooking process. This slow-cooked Swiss steak is all about patience and allowing the flavors to meld together perfectly. Here’s how you can make it:

Coating the Steak
  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Add the round steak to the bag and shake it gently to coat the steak evenly. This flour coating will help thicken the sauce as it cooks.
Browning the Steak
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the steak to the skillet and cook until it’s browned on both sides, which should take about 4-5 minutes per side. This step is essential for locking in those savory flavors.
Preparing the Crock-Pot
  1. Place the browned steak in your Crock-Pot, setting the stage for the slow-cooking process.
Creating the Flavorful Mixture
  1. In the same skillet where you browned the steak, add the sliced onion, minced garlic, and bell peppers.
  2. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften and release their aromatic flavors.
Bringing It All Together
  1. Add the diced tomatoes (along with their juices), beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, dried thyme, dried rosemary, and paprika to the skillet.
  2. Stir everything together to create a rich and flavorful mixture that will infuse the steak with deliciousness.
The Slow Cook
  1. Pour this delectable tomato mixture over the steak in your Crock-Pot, ensuring that every inch of the meat is coated with this savory goodness.
  2. Cover the Crock-Pot and set it to cook on low for 6-8 hours. This low and slow cooking method will make the steak incredibly tender and allow the flavors to meld perfectly.
The Finishing Touch
  1. Once the cooking time is complete, garnish your Hearty Crock-Pot Swiss Steak Delight with fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.

Congratulations! You’ve just prepared a mouthwatering dish that’s sure to impress your family and friends. The tender steak, aromatic vegetables, and rich tomato-based sauce come together to create a comforting meal that’s perfect for any occasion.
