I came across this recipe in the 1950s, and it's served me well ever since. As this meaty meal bakes, the aroma gets our mouths watering! -Gloria Cross, Cupertino, California

"My husband really liked this. However, don't use steak which is too thin. The first time I used the round steak, but I think boneless chuck would be even better and I will use that next time. Don't overcook it either. Great one-dish dinner and easy to prepare."
