Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Slow cookers are wonderful! If I know my day will be busy and I’ll be too tired to spend a lot of time cooking at the end of the day, I pull out the slow cooker. Although this recipe requires a bit of prep it’s so worth it when dinner time arrives! I serve it with mashed potatoes or rice.
