Frito Lay Taste of Home Recipe: Swiss Steak


In honor of Frito Lay's new Regionally Inspired Flavors, I was asked to post a recipe of a recipe that reminds you of home. For me, there was only one choice. Swiss Steak. I would like to include the disclaimer that I don't particularly care for Swiss Steak, nor did I when I was little, but it definitely reminds me of home. This was my parent's favorite dish when I was growing up, probably because the meat you use in Swiss Steak is really cheap. But, even now, just looking at the recipe, and seeing the picture, I can smell it, even taste it! 



1   (14-1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes (use can and add 1 can of water)
2   cloves garlic, crushed
1/3 cup vegetable oil
all-purpose flour for dusting
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1   round steak (approximately 1 1/2 pounds) (see Note)
1   medium onion, cut into strips
1   medium bell pepper, cut into strips

Directions

Cut steak into serving-size pieces. Season, to taste, with garlic powder and salt and pepper. Dust meat with flour. In heavy skillet, brown both sides of meat in vegetable oil. Transfer to Dutch oven. Combine garlic, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, and 1 tomato-can measure of water. Pour over steak and simmer over low heat until meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours adding water, if necessary to keep meat partially covered. Season, to taste, with additional salt and pepper. Hint: Cook this in a slow-cooker, according to manufacturers instructions, on low for a most fabulous dinner. Low heat on a slow cooker is about 200 degrees F and high heat on a slow cooker is about 300 degrees F.

Ah. There you have it, if you are so inclined. I, however, am not. I still can not bring myself to make or eat it. Just too many memories, perhaps :)
