Swiss Steak Recipe

Publisher Photo
Mom was always glad to prepare this tender, flavorful dish for a birthday dinner when one of my three brothers or I'd ask her for it. The celery, onion and mushrooms make it extra special. Now my family enjoys Swiss Steak when I make it for them. -Dianne Esposite, New Middletown, Ohio

"This should be called something else. It is not Swiss steak - no tomato."

MY REVIEW

"My husband and I are living in France this year, so I had to make some modifications to this recipe. I added a pinch of Herbes de Provence to the steak and vegetables in the oven dish. Also, steak sauce is not available here, so here is what I did...3/4 cup water (out of the 1 cup mentioned), 1 small beef bouillon cube, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon Arome Saveur (the French equivalent to kitchen Bouquet) added to the steak and vegetables after browning. I saved the leftover flour from the meat dredging, added another 1/4 cup water, and thickened the juices at the end. We both really enjoyed this meal, and I will make it again once back in the states."
