"This is one of my very favorite recipes," writes Vicky Reinhold from her ranch in Sturgis, South Dakota. "I've made it countless times over the 45 years I've been married. Our children always asked for it on their birthdays, and it has a wonderful rich flavor...guess that's why we call it 'super'!"

"I have made this several times & its the best Swiss steak I have ever had. There are only 2 of us & within 2 days the steak is gone. I add 4 cloves garlic & also slice up an additional onion as we love both. The sauce is the best sauce I've ever eaten. Wonderful especially on cold days, but is really good any day. I've passed this on to friends as when I ate the leftovers at work, I was barraged by coworkers because it looked & smelled so good!!"

"We absolutely loved this dish! We followed the recipe in addition to adding 2 tbsps of brown sugar which really topped off the flavor. We will definitely be making this again!"
