Crockpot Swiss Steak

"I threw this together in my crock pot one day and we loved it! A little time consuming because I sauteed the vegetables and browned the meat first, but it's well worth it. Browning the meat first gives it a better flavor. This Crockpot Swiss Steak is great with mashed potatoes!"
