My Mother's Swiss Steak Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2014
I'm giving this recipe five stars because it taught me how to make delicious Swiss Steak, and the recipe is so easy to follow. I have NEVER had round steak that was so tender. Usually it's very tough. This was so tender that I honestly cut the meat with my fork. Unbelievable. Thank you for adding steps on how to use the mallet. I've used a mallet before, but didn't know how to use it properly. I tweaked the recipe just a little bit. I halved the recipe because only two were eating. I used a can of stewed tomatoes in place of regular tomatoes just because I think I had it that way before and I liked it. It was great! I also cut up a medium to small onion into bite size pieces (not chopped), and for good measure I tossed a little onion powder in as well. I also cut the pepper in bite size pieces (and used just a tiny bit more than the recipe called for). Like another reviewer wrote, I will double the sauce next time. My gosh this was good! I don't remember when I cooked a better meal. Seriously. I served it with mashed potatoes. SO, SO GOOD!! It will surely be a regular at our house. Try it - you'll like it. Thank you so much for sharing.

This was great and very much like my Mothers delicious creation, but I dont think she used a recipe. She had to feed 10 of us so she was fairly creative with amounts and they varied. I served it with mashed potatoes and it too was delicious. A definite fave for a traditional fall dinner.

Best recipe. I coated the meat with flour as Barb did. Added spices and added fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Again same as Barb. I used 3 medium tomatoes for two steaks. I added water. I used wild meat which did not get soft but it tasted great. I didn't have any mushrooms or celery so I added what spices I could to bring in the flavour. It was very good anyways.

Instead of simmering the meat with water, I added the can of tomatoes and its juice (the recipe doesn’t say whether or not to drain the tomatoes) to infuse the tomato flavor into the steak. I can’t imagine swiss steak without onions, so I eliminated the onion powder and added freshly-sliced onion as well as a few green peas to give it some color. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans with mustard cream sauce and toasted almonds (recipe from this site).

This recipe was delicious. I found that the first time i made it, there was not enough sauce for the noodles. So, the second time i doubled up on the tomatoes and spices - perfect!!
