Sour Cream Swiss Steak Recipe

Sour Cream Swiss Steak Recipe

One year, after we'd purchased half a beef from a local cattle raiser, I went on a full-scale search for new and different recipes. This is one I found - my family loved it from the very first bite. I've shared it with friends at work, too (I'm a waitress). They agree it's a nice change from regular Swiss steak. My husband and I have three children - boys 25 and 21, and a girl 17. -Barb Benting, Grand Rapids, Michigan
