Vegetarian Swiss Steak
A favorite of our family, this vegetarian swiss steak can be created in a cast iron skillet, but using the crockpot or other slow cooker gives this dish a marinated flavor that will make your family ask for this often!
Ingredients (Makes 8 servings)
16 oz Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
4 T coconut oil
3 large green bell peppers
3 large red bell peppers
