Swiss Steak Recipe

G'morning ya'll. Today I have a recipe for Swiss Steak.

Swiss Steak
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds beef round steak, cut in 6 to 8 serving-size pieces, pounded to tenderize
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Canola oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
2 to 3 cups thinly sliced onion
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) tomatoes, or 4 to 5 medium tomatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup beef brothPreparation:

Combine flour, thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Baste steak pieces with Worcestershire sauce, then dredge in the flour mixture. Heat oil over medium-high heat and brown steak pieces about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer steak to slow cooker/Crock Pot. Sprinkle garlic and celery over steak, then add the sliced onion and tomatoes. Pour beef stock into the hot skillet to loosen brown bits; pour over steak. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (on high 4 to 5 hours).
Serves 6 to 8.

You could serve this with egg noodles and/or mashed potatoes and a veggie. Maybe a simple little salad and some warm dinner rolls too. Dinner rolls are big at our house. Rylie is such a picky eater so sometimes she'll just eat the roll and push the rest of the food around her plate. (((sigh))) I can only make the food, unfortunately I can not force this child to eat. Believe me, I've tried manipulation, intimidation (not scary, just no dessert, etc.), and sending her to her room. Nothing works with this child. I've even tried fixing her a seperate dinner if I don't think she'll like what we're having. But now, suddenly, out of the blue...she doesn't like hotdogs either.

What?! Hotdogs were her absolute favorite, for awhile there I was wondering if she could live on just eating those dogs. Now, she won't even eat those. OH LAWD! I think I may have a flippin' veggie-tarian on my hands. LOL

Well, have a wonderful Monday.
