This is the exact recipe my mother has always used to make Swiss steak. Comfort food for me! I hope you enjoy it...and it brings back memories too! I serve with mashed potatoes or extra wide egg noodles. Yummy!
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (I leave this out)
