So Simple Swiss Steak

• 1/2 pound lean bacon
• 2 to 3 pounds boneless beef round steak (about 1/2-inch thick)
• Salt and pepper
• 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
• 6-8 medium-size potatoes sliced
• 2 large sweet onions sliced
• 1 large can (28 oz.) diced or crushed tomatoes
• 1 15 1/2 can tomato sauce
• 1 large or 2 small cans of sliced mushrooms (optional)

In slow cooker layer bacon across the bottom, rub the meat with seasonings and garlic, place in cooker over the bacon, then layer potatoes (sprinkled with salt and pepper) and onions alternately; add mushrooms, then pour in the tomatoes and sauce, cover and cook on high 4-6 hours or low 8-12 hours. Or until the meat and potatoes are fork tender.
