"THIS WAS EXCELLENT! I worried there wasn't much liquid for the pressure cooker and kept taking sniffs to see if anything was burning, but it turned out there was plenty. Husband likes meat to be tender or he won't eat it, so I felt I was really taking a chance. It was very tender and tasty, and we both had two helpings. I am really pleased with the result. Thank You! I will definitely make this again!"

"Super easy, quick, and satisfying. Followed the directions exactly. I might add a tsp of sugar, something I often do when using tomato products. Served it to a male guest and he had extra helpings."

"VERY, VERY GOOD!!!! This is an excellent way to prepare the round steak we have when purchasing beef quarters. I don't have a pressure cooker so used my crockpot instead. 8 hours later hubby & I enjoyed a meal that took me 15 minutes to prepare. I'll freeze the leftovers and turn it into beef stew at a later date!!!!"

"I love pressure cooking! The results are so tender and succulent. I alternate between serving Swiss steak with noodles or mashed potatoes."
