Baked Swiss Steak

This dish is one of my husband's favorites, so I make it often. Baking steak might seem strange at first, but the meat becomes very tender, and the vegetables add delicious flavor. —Dolores Wynne, Clearwater, Florida

    My mom made this when we were growing up a lot. Even an inexpensive piece of beef. I ask my meat dept to take a piece of round steak in the back and tenderize it and they do. At no cost. And it is the best. This recipe makes any cut of beef nice and tender

    Except for doubling the recipe, I made no other changes. We loved it so much, I made it two weeks in a row.
