Reviews for Classic Swiss Steak
"This is really yummy, and the veggies add so much. I put in sautéed mushrooms instead of canned ones. The steak was a little dry, so I might cook it a little less next time."
"Very good. I used moose so l simmered it a little longer."
"My husband & I are retired & the kids visit at Christmas. We tried this recipe on the holidays & it was so delicious. I doubled the recipe & it was a good thing I did. I find that the best recipes I get are either from Taste of Home or Paula Deen. I always feel they always are going to be excellent."
"Pretty good. Took a while to prepare and cook though so I wouldn't do it again on a weeknight. Would probably be good in the crock pot on a weekend."
"Hubby especially loved it. Definitely a good recipe to double.~ Theresa"
