Classic Swiss Steak

 Classic Swiss Steak
Meet the Cook: When I prepare this dish for my husband and me (we're retired with two children, both grown, and two grandchildren), I always serve rolls or bread to dip in the sauce. We enjoy it to the last drop! Along with the Swiss steak, we like to have coleslaw or sliced cucumbers mixed with sour cream. -Lorraine Dyda, Rancho Palos Verdes, California
