In a Ziploc bag, combine your flour, seasoning salt, and pepper.
Cut your meat into smaller pieces and place the steak pieces into the bag with the flour.
Close and shake the bag well to coat all of the meat pieces.
Set your instant pot to saute and wait until it reads “hot”
Pour 3 tbs of cooking oil into the pressure cooker and make sure that it remains “hot”
Now place your steak pieces into the hot oil and allow it to cook for 2-3 minutes per side
When the steak is brown, remove the pieces and turn the instant pot off.
Pour your can stewed tomatoes and your beef broth into the pressure cooker and scrape everything that is stuck to the sides and bottom. This is called deglazing and is a necessary step to remove all of the stuck pieces. Thankfully, they should all come up easily with a wooden spoon or scraper.
Now add you steak pieces back into the pressure cooker
Dice your celery, onion and slice your bell pepper
Add the veggies to the pressure cooker
Place the lid on your pressure cooker and set it to cook on pressure cook manual high for 25 minutes with a 10-minute natural release.
You can serve this Swiss Steak over rice or with potatoes if you choose.
