This was really good. Didn't take too long to prep or cook and had a nice subtle sour cream flavor. Only change I made was to double the water and sour cream so I had enough gravy for the mashed potatoes we had with it. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Nov 2009.
My family really enjoyed the taste of this Swiss Steak recipe. Even after turning the burner to a low simmer, most of the sauce had cooked away. But I will make this again, because it really is a tasty dish. But the next time I make it, I'll add the sour cream and water a little later in the cooking process so it doesn't cook away again. Thanks, Hill Family!
