This is a real "stick to your ribs" meal. Using London Broil as opposed to round steak gives you a nice, thick piece of meat on your plate that melts in your mouth. Try it!

How To Make swiss steak (my way)

  • 1
    Salt & pepper both sides of meat. Dredge meat in flour; pat off excess. In large frying pan (I use my chicken fryer), brown meat in a little canola oil on both sides.
  • 2
    Top surface of meat with onion, celery, and pepper strips. Pour tomatoes on top. Sprinkle with minced garlic. Add wine and worcetershire sauce.
  • 3
    Cover pan and simmer low for 2 1/2 - 3 hours.
  • 4
    Lift meat from pan, and with a slotted spoon remove any veggies that may have fallen into juices. Just place them on top of meat.
  • 5
    To make sauce, to juices add the coffee. Bring to a boil. Blend flour into the water, and pour slowly into bubbling juices, whisking well. Allow flour to cook and thicken juices.
  • 6
    Pour sauce over meat & ENJOY!
