Italian Swiss Steak
The Swiss steak supper combines tender beef and vegetables in tangy sauce that melds tomato basil under a cheesy topping. It's quick to put together. Add a salad and warm bread, and you have a complete meal.

This is very good! I did use more peppers, onions and tomatoes. I also used fresh basil. I served this with rice and warm bread. I will definitely make this again!
