Simmered Swiss Steak
"My husband and I are beef lovers, and we truly enjoy the flavor of this round steak," writes Cindy Stewart from her kitchen in Deshler, Ohio. "It's simple to make, but it tastes like it took several hours."

This recipe just didn't have any zip, flavor-wise. Even doubling up on garlic and onion powder didn't make any difference. It was a simple recipe--too bad it didn't taste better.
