No-Fuss Swiss Steak

"I received the recipe for this dish from my cousin," notes Sharon Morrell from Parker, South Dakota. "I make it regularly because our children love the savory steak, tangy gravy and fork-tender veggies."

    My family really liked this one. I liked how easy it was and it was good, but I think next time I will add some more seasoning to it. I apparently didn't read the recipe right and cut the meat into chunks rather serving size pieces, but we served it over mashed potatoes so it was almost a stew and it worked out great.
