"I call this spoon tender because its so tender you can cut it with a spoon. This makes great tomato gravy while it cooks and is great served over rice. Sometimes I will add carrots, bell pepper, and fresh mushrooms to the pot."

"This is wonderful! I cook it exactly as the recipe says. Very easy and the round steak turned out perfectly tender. I make this often and serve it with quinoa instead of rice."
"This gets a 5 for me bcz I never liked the "Swiss steak" type round steak when I was a kid. I wanted something different and this turned out great! I love the sauce. Instead of tomatoes, I used 24 oz tomato sauce, homemade "Lipton" soup mix and gf flour. Cooked for 1 hour and was pretty tender (but not spoon tender) for round steak, BUT my steak was tenderized by the butcher also. I might try it the full 1 1/2 hrs next time. DH thought it would be good in the crock pot too. Served with elbow noodles (gf)."
"Pretty much made this as written except I added a finely chopped green pepper and I quickly cooked the onion and green pepper in the skillet I'd browned the meat in before adding it to the pot. I guess I missed the part about adding 1/2 cup water in Step 3 but we didn't miss it and it turned out fine. I even left the lid just a tiny bit open on my pot for the last 20 minutes to let the sauce thicken up. I thought this had very good flavor and the meat was very tender. We had it over rice. I think my husband would prefer egg noodles but I enjoyed the rice. I would make it again."
"Maybe is was the piece of meat we got, but this was in no way spoon tender. We added some red wine, and the sauce was very good. But next time we'll use a higher quality cut of meat."
"I changed this up a bit and cooked it in the crock pot after browning the meat. I added 2 tsp A-1 sauce, a splash of worcestershire and used only 1/2 pkg of the onion soup mix. Served over rice with some shredded cheddar cheese for those who wanted to add it. Everyone enjoyed this one. Thank you!"
"This was great , and will definitely be made again. The flavor is very good and it's easy enough to toss together. I did have a problem with your recipe though , but thanks to the knowledgeable people on Zaar , they advised me what to do. Your recipe calls for 0 tomato, mashed with juice. I was advised to use a 29oz can , which I did , with good results. Thanks for a new way to fix round steak! *ETA Served over rice"
