I got this recipe a long time ago off of a recipe card that was posted by the McCormick spices in the grocery store. It was titled Country Swiss Steak, but I find most Swiss steak has tomatoes and this one is just a delicious gravy the meat is cooked in. It is great served with mashed potatoes. I make this recipe a lot and I still love it after all these years. As a matter of fact, I just put the meat to defrost for dinner! Also, mine doesn't turn out looking like the picture on the recipe card but it tastes great. I will post a picture of mine when it gets done tonight.

How to Make Country-Style Smothered Steak

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix 3 tablespoons of dry soup mix with flour, mustard, Season-All and pepper; pound into steak pieces. In heavy skillet brown meat on both sides in hot shortening.
  2. Add the rest of the dry soup mix, the remaining flour mixture and remaining ingredients in recipe. Cover, bring to a boil. Add water if you find the gravy becoming too thick from the flour mixture. Reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until tender, adding water as needed to keep the gravy a good consistency.
  3. Remove bay leaf before serving. If desired, garnish with pimento. Serve with the gravy poured over hot, buttery mashed potatoes, that is my favorite way!
