Made this today from a TOH cookbook. Reminded me of my gramma's swiss steak when I was a kid. I just added hot crusty bread and the meal was complete!

Good simple recipe for when you don't feel like cooking all day or dirtying alot of pans. I ended up throwing this in the slow cooker before a shopping trip.
