Swiss Steak with Dumplings

 Swiss Steak with Dumplings
My mother was a great cook and I learned so much from her. Ten years ago, I entered this hearty recipe in a contest and won. It's great all year and one of our workers' favorites when I take it to the field during harvest.—Pat Habiger, Spearville, Kansas
