Swiss Steak Supper

When the Real Farmwives started the Gooseberry Patch cookbook series, the first thing that popped into my head was sharing some of these recipes with my mom. Since she's the one who taught me how to cook, I knew she'd enjoy trying out new recipes too!

The first recipe she made was Swiss Steak Supper from What's for Dinner?

She started by layering her browned, boneless beef round steak, onions, green peppers and carrots in the crock pot.

  Next, mix together brown gravy and tomato juice. Pour over meat and veggies in crock pot.
This recipe takes 10-12 hours to cook, so she let it cook all day while she was at work. (Hey all you working moms....try getting everything ready the night before and refrigerate overnight. Before you leave for work, just turn the crock pot on and dinner will be ready when you get home!!)

Why has it never occurred to me before to make Swiss steak in the crock pot? That's a great idea! I love using a slow cooker, putting everything in early in the morning and then forgetting about it until the house starts to smell delicious!

Swiss steak is a favorite of mine (that my mother makes) I've never attempted it because I'm afraid it just won't taste like hers! Yours looks so delish and makes me miss it!
