All the extravagance of your typical steakhouse meal with minimal fat!

Steak dinners are synonymous with indulgence. Our Slow Cooker Swiss Steak has all the extravagance of your typical steakhouse meal with minimal fat! With the lean cut of top round and fresh veggies, this is a perfect dish for Friday date night or to serve to guests at a dinner party. Typical Swiss steak meals are loaded with cream, but our version uses Greek yogurt to get the same silky consistency without all the unhealthy fat. And by using tomato sauce and low-sodium broth, you get all the flavor without the excess sugar and salt.

We recommend serving over brown rice or Creamy Garlic Mashed Cauliflower with a side salad or steamed vegetables.
