Most people expect a certain flavor when they bite into a Swiss steak, so this dish is a real surprise! It is a wonderful alternative to regular Swiss steak. My family really likes Mexican food, and this is one of their favorites.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

This was very good! Will make again. DH came home with a pkg., of already 'pounded' steak, so skipped that and followed recipe from browning the meat. Don't know if it had flour on it, probably not, but the sauce thickened nicely at the end, just cooking it down. Used 1 pt. home canned tomatoes and homemade salsa. Had 1 large mushroom (??) in fridge, so sliced that and added with onion slices. Yum!
