Gives me the warm fuzzies just thinking about this stuff. Comfort food at its best. Can someone pass the mashed potatoes please? :)

Just put this in the oven, and thought I'd take a second to let everyone know that this went together beautifully with the given instructions. The only thing I did different was replace the water with beef stock and added about another 1/2 cup of liquid (in the form of the juice the tomatoes were packed in with another tablespoon of steak sauce). Excellent recipe!

This was good. I didn't have any celery, and I used diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and orgegano. I used A1 steak sauce, and rather than water as called for in recipe I used 1C beef broth. Was saucey and yuummmmy. So after all that, not sure if it even taste as listed, but it was an easy, tasty meal and I wanted to rate it and alert others of the find. Thanks for posting. Can't wait to make on a cold England night, it IS a GR8 comfort food. Thnx again!!

Nuuummmy! Great swiss steak!! I am used to making mine basicly the same but not cut into pieces, left in large steak size pieces and without the mushrooms. I did use the mushrooms, but only had canned sliced and used stewed tomatoes, had no diced on hand. Also used olive oil. We were very happy with the way it turned out even though we are used to it being juicier, more gravy over the spuds. Will certainly make this again, maybe add a little beef broth next time, good comfort food!! The steak sauce and garlic came through with lots of taste, thanks for sharing.
