I made this last week...haven't had it in a long time... it is so good and a great comfort food. This is one of the many versions we make.. the photo with the red tomatoes isn't mine, the photo with the potatoes and other veggies is my photo...as are all the other photos. I adopted this recipe from JAP and adapted it to our liking. Next time I make the tomato version, I will triple the tomatoes!

How To Make baked swiss steak

  • This is my preferred way of tenderizing the meat piece.  Coat them in flour and gently but firmly pound each piece of meat with the side of a saucer.  First one direction... then the other... then turn it over and repeat.
    1
    Trim fat from steak. Pound flour into both sides of steak.
  • Place tenderized pieces of  pounded steak on lightly oiled pan. Fry both sides.
    2
    Heat oil in skillet; brown steak on both sides, season with salt and pepper.
  • Put water in the pan you fried the meat in, get all the flavorful drippings.  Pour over the meat that you placed in a roast pan.  Cover all of the meat.
    3
    Place in baking dish; cover with onion slices. (I prefer to add other veggies and make a stew).
  • Put water in the pan you fried the meat in, get all the flavorful drippings.  Pour over the meat that you placed in a roast pan.  Cover all of the meat.
    4
    In the same skillet, heat tomatoes, loosening brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  • meat covered with water and pan drippings
    5
    Add worcestershire sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Swiss Steak Stew!
    6
    Pour over steak, cover with lid or foil and bake at 350 for 2-2 1/2 hours, until fork tender.
