Edna Brown's Swiss Steak
Servings: 6 Prep 10 mins Cook 1 hr 30 mins to 2 hrs 30 mins


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless shoulder steaks, trimmed, pounded
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 envelope (1 ounce) onion soup mix
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Make It

1. Combine flour and pepper on waxed paper. Dredge the steaks, one at a time, in the flour mixture to coat on all sides.

2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat or in electric frying pan. Working in batches if necessary, add steaks to hot oil; brown thoroughly on all sides.

3. Return all the steaks to the skillet. Sprinkle meat with onion soup mix. Add 1 cup of the water to the skillet. Reduce the heat; simmer, covered, for about 1 to 2 hours, or until very tender. Check every half an hour or so to make sure the steaks are not getting dry; add water as needed. The steaks will make their own gravy as they cook.
