Swiss Strips

This is a great recipe to take to a covered dish function, or just have waiting at the end of the day. We are so fortunate to recently have got a grass fed beef from a friend. They butchered it about 6 weeks ago and we picked up the beef this past week at the butcher and locker shop. It is great beef that we don't have to worry about what kind of food the animal has been fed. This is a favorite recipe here and I sure hope you enjoy it.

Swiss Strips
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 pounds tenderized round steak cut in strips
1/4 cup flour or corn starch
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Bell Pepper sliced in rings and cut in half
2 yellow onions sliced 
3 cups celery with leaves chopped
3 garlic pods minced
2 cups stewed tomatoes with juice
2 cups tomato sauce
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons parsley
1 tablespoon rosemary
In a large mixing bowl mix the beef strips with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper with the flour or the cornstarch. Toss the beef strips to coat on all sides.
In a very hot skillet pour 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil and quickly brown the beef strips and drain on a towel.
Add the browned beef strips, celery, onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, tomato sauce and the remainder of the seasons to the Slow Cooker. Mix well and cover.
Cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours you may want to add more salt and pepper to taste.
Recipe Tip:
This is a great recipe that will make its own wonderful gravy. We like to serve it over rice or mashed potatoes.

We sure are glad that you were able to stop by and have dinner with us this evening, it is always so good to see you. Sure hope you will come back to see us real soon!
Peace and Joy
