Easy Swiss Steak

IMG_1571An old favourite of my mom’s and Hubby’s is this recipe for Swiss Steak.  I haven’t made it in a very long time. Let me tell you it did not disappoint. Mom even ate most of her plate. I always thought this was a complicated recipe, but truthfully this recipe is pretty darn easy and the steak was so tender! We didn’t even need a knife.  If your looking for comfort food and in a healthy version this is the recipe my friends. Enjoy!! Now you can easily substitute for rice or mash potatoes. Funny thing was that my hubby had rice and my mom had mash potato lol. Those two will never change.  Here is the recipe, please enjoy !
