  • 1 1/2 pounds chuck steak
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 medium onion sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 12 crimini mushrooms quartered
  • 1/2 cup beef or mushroom broth
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 pound egg noodles


  • Cut steak into bite size pieces. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Place cut meat into the bag and shake to coat completely.
  • Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large pot over medium heat. Shake excess flour off of meat and cook just until browned. Add more oil as needed. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same pan that you cooked the beef in, cook onion, garlic and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Return beef to the pan. Pour in broth, diced tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce. Add in bay leaves. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for at least 1 1/2 hours. Stirring occasionally and skimming any fat that accumulates at the top.
  • When you are just about ready to serve begin boiling the water for the pasta and cook according to package directions.
  • Remove bay leaves and spoon Swiss steak over the hot noodles and serve.
