Reviews for Sour Cream Swiss Steak
"Steaks were so tender, gravy delicious over mashed potatoes!"
"This was delicious. We both enjoyed it a lot and the leftovers heated up really well, too. I may add a bit less brown sugar the next time I make it (maybe down to 1/8 of a cup instead of 1/4) but the sauce was still very good."
"Round steak was much more tender cooking it this way."
"This appealed to me because it's different from traditional Swiss steak that always seems to have tomatoes in it, which I wasn't overly fond of. I adapted this to use in my slow cooker....sauted the onions in the drippings after browning the meat, then added the steak pieces and simmered it all for thirty minutes. After that I put everything in the cooker and added the sauce mixture. I cooked them on low for about five hours and the meat was falling apart. It made a delicious meal, and leftovers the next day tasted even better!"
"I make Swiss steak often, but this is a standout! I don't think it has to cook quite that long and I'll probably use less sugar."
"Absolutely delicious, even better than I had hoped for based on the good reviews. Just make it, you won't be sorry!"
"Tried this recipe on a whim because I had some steaks that needed to be cooked and I didn't just want plain. My family LOVED them!! Even my super picky young kids. I must say, though, that I took a shortcut and didn't simmer the steaks in the pan for 30 min with the water. Instead after browning them, I put them right in the pan for baking and baked them for 3 hours on 265."
"My family really enjoyed this recipe, next time I won't add as much sugar. Very tasty"
"The word is FLAVOR-FULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)"
"Extremely tender and flaverful. Had a friend visiting when I had this baking in the oven for our dinner and she refused to leave until I gave her the recipe!"
