Reviews for Seasoned Swiss Steak
"I love this recipe baked or in the crock pot!"
"A hearty, working man's meal! My husband and I both enjoyed this meal. I did as another reviewer suggested and used Rotel in place of chopping onions and peppers. I also added potatoes and poured 8oz of tomato sauce over everything. I cooked this in a Dutch oven. Very flavorful!"
"This is good but my family didn't like it. Just not their style. Also takes a lot of work."
"My husband loves this meal! Give it a try and I'm sure you'll love it. Slightly spicy with a little sweetness from the carrots and brown sugar. A quick shortcut is to use Rotel in place of the peppers, onions and tomatoes. It isn't the prettiest dish, but it is wonderfully hearty with some mashed potatoes on a cold winter day."
"I've made this recipe many times. It always gets rave reviews and everyone always wants the recipe. They think I spent HOURS on dinner, and it's very simple. Tomorrow, I'm making it for 20!"
"This was very good. Used flat iron steak and cooked in crock pot."
