swiss steak soup

Swiss steak soup?  Huh??  I love swiss steak, but didn't want swiss steak.  Does that make any sense at all?  So I created swiss steak soup.  Not only was it a hit with me, Josh & my Mom, but Max loved it, l-o-v-e-d it.  He ate green peppers, and mushrooms.  Unheard of.  We had the leftovers for dinner tonight and it was definitely more of a pasta dish than a soup, but still very good and if you wanted it more soupy you could always add some beef broth or water.  

You Need:
1 pkg beef cubes
1 carton beef broth(I used frozen beef gravy I had on hand)
2 green peppers, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pkg baby bellas
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 small can diced tomatoes
half a bag of egg noodles

Saute your beef to get a sear on it.  In the meantime place your broth(or in my case a block of frozen gravy), peppers, onion, mushrooms, garlic, crushed tomatoes, tomatoes and spices(I used italian seasoning, salt & pepper) in crockpot on low.  Once your beef is browned throw that in too.  Let it cook on low for 6-8 hours, half hour before dinnertime add in your noodles and let them cook.  Voila.  We ate ours with melted cheese on top.  Total YUM.

    Third thought "Oh.. swiss steak :D"
    Looks really good. Got an idea's for grade tomatoes? We just so happen to have found them really cheap :)

    1. HA - you're too funny! Although I do love swiss cheese, actually any cheese :) I do have a ton of great tomato recipes. First and foremost - homemade salsa, fresh tomato pasta(on my blog), chopped up tomatoes, basil, olive oil, vinegar & spices, eat it cold, SO good.
