– 2 pounds beef round steak, cut into serving-size pieces
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 onion, sliced
– 2 cloves garlic, minced

1. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge the steak pieces in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the steak pieces on both sides, then transfer them to the slow cooker.
3. In the same skillet, sauté onions and garlic until softened. Add them to the slow cooker.
4. Pour diced tomatoes, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, thyme, and bay leaf over the steak in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
5. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or until the steak is tender.
6. About 1 hour before serving, add sliced carrots and cubed potatoes to the slow cooker. Stir gently to combine.
7. Once the vegetables are tender and the steak is cooked to perfection, remove the bay leaf and discard.
8. Serve the Swiss steak hot, spooned over mashed potatoes or alongside crusty bread for a satisfying meal.

Tips for Success

– For extra flavor, sear the steak pieces until golden brown before adding them to the slow cooker.
– Feel free to customize the vegetables to your liking. Bell peppers, mushrooms, or celery would be delicious additions.
– If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water and stir it into the slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
– Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for longer storage.
