This great tasting Swiss steak, is very easy to make. I used olive oil to fry the steaks in. Then the onions were sauteed in the oil before adding the mushrooms. The gravy is full of flavor. I liked this so much, that I think I'll make it again tomorrow night. Thank you for posting. Made for Please Review My Recipe

I had never ate Swiss steak before so I have nothing to compare this too but this was good and easy to make. I didn't add the flour, I just seasoned with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. I only used 1/2 teaspoon of each of the seasonings. I didn't add the mushrooms as I forgot to buy them at the grocery store and I wasn't running back. I also didn't saute the items in oil, I just sprayed my pan with Pam. We all enjoyed this.
