Very good! You didn't specify size of can on the tomatoes or sauce, so I used a 28 oz. can of tomatoes and 15 oz. can of sauce (didn't want to error on the side of not having enough sauce!). I also "kicked it up a notch" with about 1/4 tsp. of cayenne. Mmmmmm! Thanks for another family favorite.

Mmmm, Mmmm, Good! Talk about comfort food. I served this tonight with cornbread, buttered egg noodles and collard greens (bacon fat, butter and all - we ain't scared of no stinkin' cholesterol!) Even the finicky eater loved it. Thanks, Peg!

Oh my goodness, this was just divine. I took Sharlene~W's lead and used a 28 oz. can of tomatoes and 15 oz. can tomato sauce. That was just right. Your directions were very precise and thorough. The steak pieces were so tender. The pepper and tomato sauce made this so yummy. A very hearty dish that my family and I really enjoyed. Thanks Peg.

This was delicious and took me back to my childhood. We had swiss steak a lot growing up! I did not use the Adolph's or the green pepper; just personal preferences. I froze all but 1 piece, as I've been cooking and freezing a lot of food for my elderly parents. The reserved piece was my lunch! Thanks for the recipe. I will be making this again soon.

I think you meant the steaks should be 1/4 inch thick & not 4 inches thick.... My partner & I were looking for a Swiss Steak recipe that used tomato sauce rather than a brown gravy & we decided to make yours. WOW, are we glad that we did. If we could give this recipe 100 STARS we would. We followed your directions to a "T" & it was FANTASTIC! If anyone changes anything on this recipe, then their elevator doesn't go to the top floor. Peg, I'd like to include you on my personal list if you send me your e-mail address. Mine is AlanLeonetti@q.com

I grew up on Swiss Steak, and of course my mom didn't have a recipe because she 'just makes it'. So, I was happy to find a recipe on here...and it was delicious just the way I remembered.
