Easy Swiss Steak Recipe

Thin slices of round steak dredged in corn starch and simmered in a peppery tomato beef sauce until tender. This hearty dinner recipe is gluten free as is, if you use gluten-free corn starch. It's also relatively low carb. But you can serve it over egg noodles, rice or mashed potatoes or with a side of vegetables.

  • 2 pounds bottom round steak, trimmed and cut into large squares
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup celery, finely chopped
  • ½ cup red and yellow bell peppers, diced
  • ½ cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup crushed tomato puree
  • 1 cup organic low sodium beef stock


  • Season the meat with salt, pepper and garlic powder, and lightly dust with cornstarch on both sides
  • Add olive oil to Dutch oven or large skillet, and brown meat on both sides over medium high heat 
  • Stir in peppers, onions and celery
  • Pour crushed tomatoes and beef broth over meat, stir, cover, and let simmer on medium low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally

You can use flour instead of corn starch
You can also reduce black pepper to ½ teaspoon for a milder flavor
If you don't have beef stock, use 1 cup of water, instead
