Swiss Steak for Two

Even though I'm a widow, I still cook for two since I frequently have a friend or grandchild join me for lunch or dinner. This is a hearty main dish that gets great flavor and color from tomatoes, green pepper and onion.—Mildred Stubbs, Rockingham, North Carolina

    This is a very tasty and quick dish! I usually have the market run the meat thru the cuber to make the meat less tough.

    Just made last night. Absolutely delicious and tender. I did cook longer than stated just to make sure that the round steak was tender, since it is a tough cut of meat. The flavor is great.
