  • “OMG…. this is soooo good. I had Swiss Steak growing up but could never get it to come out right when I fixed it. I made this tonight and it was just delicious. Just like my childhood. (The only difference in the recipes was my grandmother used tomato soup instead of stewed tomatoes.)I will definatly be making this again and am putting it in my favorites cookbook. Thank you for posting this recipe.”
