Swiss Steak Recipe

This swiss steak recipe makes a hearty dinner that is especially satisfying when the weather is cold. I like to serve this saucy swiss steak with mashed potatoes and garlic green beans.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 lbs. round steak
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 large carrots, diced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 14.5 oz. can French onion soup (not condensed)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)


  1. In a wide shallow dish or plate, mix flour, salt and pepper.

  2. Heat butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat or an electric skillet set to 350 degrees F.

  3. Dredge round steak in flour mixture, coating both sides. Sear in skillet, turning once to brown on both sides.

  4. Add onions, celery, carrots and mushrooms to skillet. Cook, stirring gently, a minute or two.

  5. Reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle remaining flour over vegetables. Stir until flour starts to brown. Add French onion soup and water, stirring until no flour lumps appear.

  6. Let vegetables and meat cook 35-45 minutes on low until vegetables are soft, gravy is thick and meat is tender. Stir in sour cream, if desired.
Makes 6-8 servings.
