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

Everyone in my family, including 2 picky kids and a toddler, really liked this. I changed it to 6 servings, which, by the way, only needed 2 cans of tomatoes. This was the perfect amt. for a large 15x11 in. dish. Because some reviews said this was a little bland, I increased the amount of onion called for and added: a clove of garlic, some bell pepper, and a beef bouillon cube. It turned out really flavorful and not bland at all. It was also very tender and moist. I would suggest to those who said it was dry to make sure dish is covered tightly (I used foil) and make sure meat is covered in the tomato mixture. Read More

Very easy and very yummy! My fussy 4 year old and 20 month old ate it too! I added garlic powder, pepper, and paprika to the flour mixture. I also added bell pepper. Super tender and moist. Will make again! Read More

I can see why its your husband's favorite, Dolores.The steak came out moist and tender and very delicious. I used stewed tomatoes in basil and garlic. Added 1 clove minced garlic, 1t beef bouillon granules and upped the Worcestershire sauce to 1t for a more earthy flavor. Because of personal preference, left off the cheese. Thanks for sharing.

My mom used to make swiss steak when I was a kid, and I came online searching for a recipe like hers. This one was very close! I used thinly sliced sirloin, and doubled the recipe for a family of four. Meat was fall-apart tender after 1 hr in a convection oven. I served it over homemade egg noodles. Read More

This was great--I bumped up the worsteshire sauce, and used a can of diced tomatoes in place of stewed tomatoes--to cut down on fat/calories I omitted the cheese at the end--we didn't miss it. Served over noodles it was a great complete meal! Read More

This dish is excellent. It's a great "stew" variation. I served it with some seasoned butter noodles and salad and everyone loved it! Will definitely prepare it again. Read More

This was tasty. My boyfriend really enjoyed the flavors but I think that I just didnt like the way that swiss steak tastes. It wasnt bad at all. I served with broccoli and pasta. I would try it again but with a different type of steak for sure. Thanks! Read More
