Bob’s Swiss Steak Recipe

One of the reasons why I started this food blog was to have favorite family recipes in one spot.  This is Swiss Steak Recipe is one such recipe.  Bob (a.k.a. “Dad” to me and “Pa” to my kids) has been making this recipe for quite some time.  It’s one of my husband’s favorites.  He brought out his recipe card yesterday and made it for a family gathering.  We serve it on top of homemade German Spaetzle Noodles.  Very easy, very yummy!

Frugal Tip:  Find recipes you love that use cheaper cuts of meat.  When you simmer and cook them slowly, they become tender and flavorful.  You could also speed up the process and make this in a pressure cooker.  A pressure cooker is great for tenderizing tough cuts of meat in a relatively short period of time.
