Hi Tamy here filling in for Min today which works well with her theme, Try a New Recipe.  This recipe is the perfect Try A New Recipe.

I recently had a thrift store find beyond belief.  An old recipe box full of old hand written recipes.  I estimate they are from the 50-60’s era when women passed around recipes at morning coffee, tupperware parties and PTA meetings.

This recipe called for either a can of diced tomatoes OR a can of cream of chicken soup for a creamy version.  I decided to amp it up a bit and added a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles and changed the soup from chicken to celery.  What resulted was an extremely tender and spicy round steak in its own gravy.
2 pounds round or swiss steak, 3/4 inches thick
1 large Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
1 pound can tomatoes OR 1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can ROTEL tomatoes with green chiles
1 can cream of celery soup
salt & pepper to taste
  • Salt and pepper each piece of meat.
  • Cut meat into serving size pieces
  • Whisk together the soup and tomatoes until well blended.
  • Layer meat, onion rings and soup several times in crock pot.
  • Cook on low 8-10 hours.

I served it with Potato casserole and the guys wolfed it ALL down!

It’s PARTY time here at OUR KrAzY kitchen.

Today’s the day, it’s in the crockpot! I used rotel + cream of chicken, and 2 hours on high (+ several hours on low) to make up for my late start! Smells great…


Thanks, Tamy! I think I’ll make this when my parents come to visit on Friday! (Min’s fine, just completely overwhelmed = space cadet!!) LOTS going on! Thanks for the fill-in and your concern.
