Crock Pot Swiss Steak Recipe:

What is Swiss Steak you might ask?  It’s actually not a particular cut of beef but a method of preparing a tough cut of beef (often round steak).  “Swissing” means to tenderize a cut by pounding it or rolling it or cooking in a method that results in a tender texture.

If you are familiar with cubed steak, then you’ve seen a cut that has already been “swissed”.  Cube steak has a distinct texture from a tenderizing machine that gives it the notable marks on top.  Pounding, rolling or running through a tenderizing machine breaks up the connective tissues in meat which therefore results in a more tender texture.

The “swissing” method for this round steak dinner includes cooking low and slow in the crock pot which allows to beef to become much more tender than with other cooking methods. This recipe from the Quailtown Christian Church includes a full meal of round steak, carrots, potatoes and green beans in a tomato sauce.
