Swiss Steak

A clipping from my mother’s cigar box of recipes and other paper treasures. I remember she made this very often, but until now, nobody had her recipe for it.

2 T fat
1-3/4 lb round beef
2 T flour
1 medium onion, sliced
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
2-1/2 C water
1-1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
2 t Worcestershire sauce
1/2 C chopped green pepper
1 C uncooked rice

Melt the fat in a large skillet. Pound the flour into both sides of theĀ  meat. Brown the meat on both sides in the fat. Lay the onion slices over the meat. Add the tomato sauce, water, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and cook over low heat 1 hour.

Uncover and add the green pepper. Pour the uncooked rice over the meat and around the sides of the meat. Spoon some of the gravy over the rice. Cover and cook over low heat for 45 minutes or until rice is tender. Add more water if necessary to keep the meat from sticking.
