MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2014

"My husband & I loved this. We substituted venison for the beef. It was easy & quick to prepare. Thanks"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2014

"This recipe is different from what my husband and I remember from our childhoods, but we really enjoyed it. I seem to remember my mom's Swiss steak to have a brown gravy rather than a tomato based gravy. But this recipe is delicious and probably much healthier."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 4, 2014

"My husband told me it was one of the most tender cuts of steak he'd even eaten. My daughter isn't a big red meat fan and she even liked it. Really hearty and delicious. Will definitely make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2012

"This recipe was delicious and very easy to make. I used a larger amount of steak (about 6 pieces) but the same amount of the other ingredients. there wasn't any need to thicken the sauce. it was thick and delicious with baked potatoes. I'll definitely serve it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2010

"I made this exact same recipe in my crockpot and it was excelent. I just browned the steaks and then put everything in a crockpot on high for 3 hours. I think you could substitute beef broth in this...I would use a cup. Next time I make this I might add more of the cornstarch mixture to make the sauce a little thicker."
