Swiss Steak

Serves: 6

Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs. round steak, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
onion powder to taste
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1-14 1/2 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions:
You can make this all in one piece, but it is easier to handle the meat if you cut it into six pieces. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and onion powder in a resealable gallon plastic bag. Shake steak in mixture in plastic bag until covered. Set an electric skillet to 300 degrees. Melt butter in skillet. Brown meat on both side. Take the meat out of the skillet and carefully wipe the skillet out with a paper towel. Put the steak back in the skillet. Top with tomatoes and sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce. Cover skillet. Change heat setting to simmer and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Serve with Former Browniemaker’s Basil and Garlic Potato Wedges. Have with a glass of water.
