"When I was working, I'd put this Swiss steak in the slow cooker before I left for the day," recalls Gloria Carpenter of Bancroft, Michigan. A creamy mushroom sauce made with canned soup nicely flavors the tender round steak. "It's delicious and so simple to make."

"This was a really a good dish. I made two additions I used cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic and used 1 and 1/4 cups of beef broth in place of the water. Will keep this on go to dinners."

"I used cube steaks, and it was perfect! Tender, flavorful, and crazy-easy! My husband was sure he didn't like Swiss steak, but he told me this was really good. So a win, I think!"

"This recipe had a good taste, but I found that the meat was a little dry. Next time I prepare it, I think I'll cut down on the cooking time."

"This got thumbs up from my husband and sons. Extremely easy and convenient for the cook. Keep this recipe and ingredients on hand for those days when you would rather be reading a good book instead of cooking. However, I always use boneless chuck roasts instead of other beef cuts, as it's the only one sold in supermarkets these days that has enough marbling to be tender."

"Great recipe! I made it with vension, sliced the onions instead of chopped and threw in a few mushrooms-great on a chilly fall day. Thanks for the recipe."
