Baked Swiss Steak

Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"THIS DISH is one of my husband's favorites, so I make it often. It's also a handy recipe - while it's in the oven, you can do other things. The meat becomes very tender, and the vegetables add delicious flavor. -Dolores Wynne, Clearwater, Florida"

I have to admit, I did not much like this steak at all. Probably just personal preference versus that this recipe is necessarily "bad". I couldn't even bring myself to eat the leftovers.
