Made Swiss Steak for dinner tonight. NO not a lousy picture this time. Making rice and white corn to go with it for hubby. I am German and like mine with mashed potatoes. Next time I will.

It has been simmering for several hours now and should just fall apart when I serve it up.

We have a small grocery chain here in SE Ala, with only about 4 stores. They have the best meat that you could ever want. So I had gotten some cube steak and that is what I used. I didn't do the round steak, beat it with a hammer, bread it and fry it up and then make your gravy thing.
I let the cube steak braise in it's own juice in the teflon lined pan with a good lid. I add my spices, mainly sea salt, pepper, paprika and garlic. I also add green pepper and chopped up onion. When all has simmered and the onion's are clear I add diced or stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce. I let that simmer again for a long time. I like mine with mashed potato's, but not tonight.

It is good, not too heavy and it fills you up. Later

My mom always served swiss steak with mashed potatos. She used round steak and simmered it for hours, and I can't remember anything better. I've never been able to make it to my satisfaction, so I quit trying and haven't had it for years. MMMMM, you bring back some good memories.
