Mom's Easy Swiss Steak With Yummy Gravy

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Kie&Den

Kie has been fixing this for our family for over 40 years. She got it from her mom, so it's tried and true. The only change was an upgrade to Golden Mushroom Soup from just plain mushroom soup.

This recipe is so simple, but very delicious. The slow, long cooking time allows the aroma to permeate the entire house and call my family to the kitchen. You are right, the golden mushroom soup makes a big difference. I will be making this many, many times. A true staple.
