I've been using this recipe since I was married in 1952. My husband let me know early on in our marriage that this dish was one of his favorites, so I still make it often. I think most men like it because of the hearty portions of meat and noodles.

"This recipe is one of the best meals I've ever made. I had originally clipped it from a Reminisce or Taste of Home magazine and had misplaced it. I'm so glad to have found it here!"

"Great recipe...I can see why your husband has requested it for so many years. My husband loved it and far preferred it to the Swiss steak I normally make, so I'm sure I will make it again. Thanks for the recipe and love the story behind it."
