    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    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!

      Two thumbs up! Did this tonight for dinner, using the stovetop directions, and it was wonderful. I wasn't sure on the amount of flour to use, as the 3 tsp didn't seem like enough -- so I used more. I also added a minced clove of fresh garlic, more wine than just a tsp :-) and my tin of tomatoes was 28 oz (which worked fine). This smelled heavenly as it bubbled away, and the meat was very tender. No leftovers! I served it with rice and, while that was good, I think mashed potatoes would have been best. Thanks, Karen, for the recipe -- it's a real keeper!

      Very versatile recipe. Omit the carrots and celery add a couple tablespoons of soy sauce and bell peppers and you have peppersteak. Very good either way.
