We all have the that swiss steak recipe that has been in our family for four generation. Onions and peppers and tomatoes all cooking slowly together. Well, sometimes I like to break tradition. And I have a lot of round steaks and steaks for swissing. So, I tried something new. French Onion soup inspired swiss steak. I started with the cast iron skillet and ended with my crock pot.
But first, the gravy French onion goodness.
Simply mix a can of French onion soup and a can of cream of mushroom soup together. Pour over top of the steak and season generously with your favorite steak seasoning. And then before you are ready to eat, whip up some mashed potatoes. Or cook some noodles. Or do both. You will want to soak up the gravy.
