Yes. My mom used round steak(I think). Slow roasted or in the crock pot with home canned tomatoes and onion. It was good, but I have not had it since I left home.

My mom used to make it. I still do occasionally.

Flour and brown the meat and place in slow cooker. I use a quart of home frozen or canned tomatoes, some sliced onion and sliced carrots. No seasonings other than salt and pepper the "down home" way.

Everyone here likes it and it's an economical meal.

I would think that googling Swiss Steak would give you hundreds of recipes to choose from.

I never tenderized it. I cooked it at a lower oven temperature for a couple of hours. I used canned, diced tomatoes, diced green peppers, and diced onions. If I had it available I tossed a packet of onion soup mix in there also. Probably why I don't make it except once or twice a year--the sodium!
Is any steak or any meat a bargain anymore, except maybe pork and chicken? OF course with the weather damage done this past week or so, those 2 may no longer be bargain protean.

Yes I still make it because my husband likes the tomatoe and onion gravy type too .
Sounds like a good way to make it. I am giving it a try tomorrow and spoiled brat is pretty excited about it.

I used to make it. A cheap round steak, pounded with the spiky side of the meat tenderizer, then floured. Put the steak in a rectangle baking dish, cut potatoes and carrots to fit around it. Pour a can of onion soup over, and bake. I can't remember the cooking time or temp since it's been about 20 years since I made it.

My Mom used to serve Swiss steak and I recall also having it at casual restaurants in my youth; however, it was never one of my favorites and I have never made it myself.

Saute green pepper, onion, garlic and seasoning, remove from pan.
Lightly flour cube steaks with seasoned flour.
Sear cube steaks on medium-high heat in a little oil, remove from pan.
Mix some tomato paste, beef broth and a big can of crushed tomatoes (with the juice) together.
Add steaks and veggies back to pan.
Pour tomato and broth mixture on top.
Bring to an almost boil, cover, turn down to a simmer, cook until steaks are fork-tender (depends on thickness, maybe 45 mins-1 hr). You could do it in the oven instead, also.

The only way I find good deals on steak is if I find a manager's markdown.
