"There’s something incredibly comforting about a home-cooked meal, especially when it involves a classic like Swiss Steak. I know this may seem like more of a cold weather meal but sometimes I just crave comfort food. That probably comes from my childhood since my mom would make a roast in the camper so that we had a good meal after playing in the pool at the campground all day. When I was first married I would make Swiss Steak with the tomatoes that my husband’s grandma would can but since I don’t have that option anymore I thought I’d give it a try with store bought tomatoes. This meal turned out just like I remember it, although I’m thinking about learning how to can my own tomatoes in the future. Swiss Steak is a dish that’s really easy to make and only takes a few simple ingredients, and the leftovers are even better the next day! WHAT IS SWISS STEAK? Swiss Steak is a dish that usually consists of a tough cut of beef, such as a shoulder, that has been tenderized by pounding or rolling, then braised in a cooking pot or slow cooker. It is often cooked with onions, garlic, diced tomatoes, and various herbs and spices to add flavor. The term “Swiss” in Swiss Steak does not refer to Switzerland, but rather to the process of “swissing”, which is a method of mechanically tenderizing meat. The result is a hearty and flavorful dish that is often served with mashed potatoes or noodles. "
