“This is a variation of Swiss Steak using hamburger. I made a Swiss steak recipe with both chuck steak and hamburger since that's what was in the freezer. The hamburger part actually turned out better. Give it a try.”

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Form beef into 4 large round patties. (It's fine to use frozen.).
  3. Heat oil in a Dutch oven on top of the stove.
  4. Brown the patties on both sides and then remove from the pan. You may need to do this in two batches.
  5. Add the onion and cook about 5 minute.
  6. Add the garlic and thyme and cook another minute.
  7. Add the tomato paste and flour and cook another minute.
  8. Stir in the canned tomatoes, chicken broth and parsley and bring to a boil.
  9. Put the browned beef patties back into the pan and cover.
  10. Put in the oven and bake until beef is cooked through. This will be about 2 hours for fresh hamburger or 3-4 hours if it was frozen.
