Super Tender Swiss Steak

This makes in one pan. Start on the stovetop and finish in the oven. So tender you can cut it with a fork. Gravy is excellent over mashed potatoes or egg noodles. Revision: Thanks to 3 KillerB's for pointing out some corrections that needed to be made to this recipe.

Great dish! I doubled the Italian seasonings and garlic. It didn't have as much sauce as I would have expected, but the taste was fantastic! Definitely something I'd make again.

This was OK. My kids tasted it and wouldn't eat more, and they normally love anything with tomatoes. Thanks anyway!

I made as posted. I drained the tomatoes and mushrooms thoroughly while I sauteed the onions and meat. The meat was tender. This is an excellent recipe for busy people. Thanks for sharing. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag,
