Al's Baked Swiss Steak

Recipe by  

"This is a variation on another recipe, which is great as is, but I couldn't make Swiss steak without green peppers or garlic. I also season the meat instead of the flour; it gets a more intense taste that way."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a shallow baking dish.

With 2 minor changes - ie left out the Lawrey's seasoned salt and the shredded cheese - this turned out marvelous. With 1 pound of beef this easily made 4 servings with fantastic results. Loved it.

Wonderful. The sauce was so good. And not too hard to make.

I added a 28oz can of tomatoes since I had more meat than recipe originally called for. I also added more carrots, left out celery since we don't care for it and didn't bother with the cheese. Pretty good.

My husband complimented it on the first bite. Served it over rice with no cheese. A couple modifications: (1) didn't use any flour so it was a bit soupy; (2) used home canned tomatoes, not stewed; and (3) cut the meat into bite-sized pieces.

very good. I cooked the onions and celery a little before adding the rest of the ingredients. Everything else I followed per recipe. we served on top of egg noodles. Everyone loved it and good thing we doubled the recipe because I am looking forward to seconds

Very good. First time I have made Swiss Steak so I can't compare it to others, but the family and I agreed that Al's works just fine. I also sauteed onions, celery etc. before mixing with the tomatoes. I recommend this recipe for good taste, attractive presentation and straightforward instructions.
