This favorite beef entree was perfect when our four children were at home. It was simple for me to fix this budget-stretcher, and the kids loved it.—Patricia Hooks, Greenville, Texas

"I have used this recipe for years. I use 1can tomato paste instead of the stewed tomatoes, 1 cup of water & one cup of brown gravy. I also add carrots to make it a one dish meal that can be served with noodles or mashed potatoes."

"now this was an excellent swiss steak! tender and full of flavor. easy to put together. but-pretty hard to find the right cut of meat. Why is round steak so scarce?"
