I was really glad to find this recipe since it's a great way to use round steak and it picks up fabulous flavor from one of my favorite herbs - tarragon. I am a homemaker with three children and enjoy cooking tasty dinners like this one for my family. -Lorna Dickau, Vanderhoof, British Columbia

"I have never made Swiss Steak because I didn't like my mom's version and dreaded when she made it when I was growing up. So I was delighted and surprised at how yummy this recipe is. Everyone really enjoyed it."
