Saucy Swiss Steak

2 1/2 pounds beef bottom round steak -- cut about 2-inches thick
3 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 clove garlic -- crushed
1 can crushed tomatoes -- (16 ounces) undrained
1 medium bay leaf


Dredge meat in flour. In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, melt butter; add meat, cooking until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Remove meat to a platter. Add onion, green pepper, celery and garlic to the Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender and light brown. Add tomatoes with their liquid and the bay leaf and bring to a boil.

Return meat to Dutch oven and reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 2 hrs, until meat is fork-tender, turning the steak over after 1 hr. Remove meat to a platter and keep warm. Over medium-low heat bring sauce to a simmer and simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly. Discard bay leaf. Slice meat and pour sauce over it before serving.
