I have been making this recipe for 25 years but I have never written it down. I got the recipe from my best friends mother in law. I religiously made it exactly as she had given it to me. I ran into her a few years ago and told her how I had made her recipe all these years. She told me she never puts the same ingredients in twice. She just uses what she has on hand. LOL.
I found this great recipe at Detroit Free Press, submitted by Susan Selasky. The ingredients are ones that are typically available is most kitchens and the flavor really bursts from this economical cut of meat.
This is a recipe that I got from my oldest son when he was a student at Purdue University in their Hospitality and Tourism program. This is the flank steak recipe that is served in the restaurant at the Student Union. Marinating time not included. This also works well on other cuts of steak.
This is an easy, yet very tasty spaghetti casserole, which reminds me of the spaghetti they used to serve us in elementary school. I loved their spaghetti! I normally only brought my lunch, but not on spaghetti day!
This recipe came from a local church fund raising cook book. Mrs. Geraldine is a good friend of the family. She reminds me so much of Mrs. Clause, that I can't help but smile every time I think of her. This recipe freezes well. Do not bake before freezing. Just put it together, freeze it, thaw it and cook.
This recipe can be prepared on the stove top, or in the oven or crock pot. I decided to post it since it is a bit different than the swiss steak recipes I have seen on here. Just wait until you smell this stuff cooking!
We had these not too long ago and we both decided that they needed a little more seasoning. We put a little hot pepper sauce on them and they were much better. I would probably include 2 teaspoons in the meat mix the next time that I make them.
Since I make this without really measuring, I cannot really list the exact amounts that I use, the amounts stated are as close as it gets to what I use when I make this, as long as you do use a minimum of 2 cups red wine all other ingredients really don't have to be exact. I also use this to make shanks and pot roast. Since me family loves spicy, I always add in red pepper flakes, but that is optional. I serve this with hot cooked pasta. If you are making a pot roast with this recipe you will have to adjust the cooking time, coat the roast in seasoned flour and brown on all sides, then continue with the recipe as stated. The short ribs are cooked on top of the stove, but you also can cook it in the oven if desired. Add in some small fresh button mushrooms too!
Just the thing for a day when you're wanton something delicious, and a hamburger patty is just too restrictive. Loosen up your inhibitions and pile some loose meat on a bun. Wicked over hot, whipped potatoes as well.
