Well maybe you didn't ask but you thought it! LOL

Broke out the Big Poppa for some well deserved love, been a while since i used her. The basket I brought up to searing level to brown the steak and sautee the veggies then lowered for a couple hours to simmer the pot.

Fuel was mostly some apple chunks, partial burnt oak splits and a little KBB.

Meat was top round steak, I swissed the heck out of it and also used the jaccard.

I don't remember asking, but it does look good :-D

The Swiss Steak that I remember as a kid was ground beef patties in a mushroom and onion gravy, always with mashed potatoes.

Ron ya know it's also commonly made with cubed steak also. Mushrooms sounds good too, I'm gonna make another batch soon and add that along with maybe some shredded/chopped carrots and of course use some egg noodles!

You said you "swissed the hell out of it" This is probably a dumb question but, what does that mean?

You said you "swissed the hell out of it" This is probably a dumb question but, what does that mean? It means to bruise and or tenderize the hell out of it. Say you start with 2-3" of thickness beef... just pulverize it and I like to jaccard it down to maybe 1" thickness. After it simmers it all that goodness it's melt in your mouth, mine cut with a dull wooden spoon.

I didn't ask but thanks!

I remember my dad pounding the hell out of the floured steak (and flouring himself) while the onions were frying. Did you add canned tomatoes?

Sure looks tasty!

I, too, had never heard the word Swiss used as a verb...

That looks delicious! I love Swiss Steak, but I would have never thought to cook it in a grill.

Yes I never thought of doing it on the grill too but It does what the stove top does so I figured why not and let it get some smoke along the way. After I lowered the charcoal basket just a little bit of air gave me a nice slow simmer.

Looks great! Glad it was tender. Thanks Terry, yea it was way tender. I like using top round but cubed does real good too since it's already tenderized.

I used the jaccard, flattened with some pounding and then used the jaccard again and after some simmering it falls apart.

Looks good, I have no idea what Swissed steak is Hey Bob I'd add that you'll love the slightly sweet and savory gravy swissed steak makes. The gravy IMO is the real highlight to this meal, especially when introduced with some mashed potatoes.

In our family it was a mushroom and onion gravy with either ground beef like Ron said, or "pounded round steak" which my Mom pounded with the mouth of an old Coke bottle.

I think Mom also had celery in hers but i'm not positive. The next batch is gonna be cubed steak, and adding the celery, a little chopped carrots and mushrooms. Oh and gonna use both mashed taters and egg noodles under it.

This is such a good meal I'm surprised it's only an old school thing we can remember as kids.
