Bakin’ With Bacon And the King!

Standard

Friends, Romans, Country………oops – wrong speech!   

Hello everyone and welcome to Cooking With The King of Bacon!

 

I’ve got a very yummy recipe for you today – and you can put as much bacon in it as you want………….recipe calls for an amount but like most recipes – it’s a guideline and not a set rule so add or subtract as you like but one thing I can promise you – this sure tastes good (The Royal Mom says so).

Oven Swiss Steak

Ingredients

 

  • 8 bacon strips
  • 2 pounds beef top round steak (3/4 inch thick)
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

 

Directions

  • In a large cast-iron or ovenproof skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain, reserving 1/4 cup drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • Trim beef; cut into serving-size pieces. Brown on both sides in drippings. Top meat with mushrooms, tomatoes and onion. Sprinkle with tarragon and bacon. Cover and bake at 325°, until meat is tender, 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours, basting twice.
  • Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in cream. Simmer, uncovered, until heated through, 3-4 minutes. Return meat to skillet and turn to coat with sauce. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.

“Mfffphglub……”

I think what Garfield is trying to say is that the Swiss Steak was delicious but he still has room for his cherry pie dessert.      Good for you Garfield!  You’re a bigger and better man than I !

But not THAT much bigger (hahaha) !!

Give this one a try gang……trust me…….you’re gonna love it.

  1. Oh man, I had to run for a towel to clean up dad’s drool off my fur. He cried reading this, saying that as much as he longs for such a treat mom would have his head if he even mentions such things!

  2. Mom says that she hasn’t had Swiss steak in years, and that this looks and sounds yummy. She says she can almost smell it cooking. Thanks for this recipe, Teddy. We have to be honest, we kind of miss those bunny ears. We sure do like your cute troll, though. Happy Caturday. Hope you get some outsides.

    • Swiss steak was a biggie years ago – this reminded Mom of just how GOOD and easy it is to make…..someone suggested it might be fairly easy to do this in a crockpot and I’m sure it is but this old fashioned way is so darn good. Today at Scouts we should be seeing a lot of cute TROLLS. Tee Hee

      Hugs, Teddy
