    I used a cheap cut of meat and 2 hours proved too long and it was dry. But that was my fault for not checking it. Otherwise, we added the carrots as suggested and the whole thing was really delicious!

    Made this with london broil as directed. Easy and tasty. I like the fact that was not tomatoe based as most swiss steak recipes are. I baked up perfectly in the oven and the fact that I baked it in the same pan I browned it in made clean up go fast. DH loved it and it will go in our regular rotation. Thank you for sharing.

    This was really good...the whole family enjoyed it. I did add a can of tomato paste to make it more tomato-ey, and also thickened it the sauce with some flour. Served it over hot cooked noodles.

    Was looking for a recipe with out all the tomatoes. This fit the bill. Meat was very tender, with a very good taste. I browned and cooked it in my cast iron fry pan in the oven, covering it tight with foil. Did add some corn starch. the gravy was thick and delish over potatoes. 2 hours was just right. thank you Sage.

    The meat was tasty and fall-apart tender. This was very close to my grandma's recipe taste-wise, but there was too much broth. It was almost like a soup. Next time I'll either cut back or take some broth out at the end of cooking and thicken it with some flour to make gravy.


I love to cook, read recipe books and food magazines,spend time in kitchen stores, grocery stores, gourmet shops, learning new cooking techniques, trying new kitchen gadgets,tasting exotic foods,enjoying a wonderful meal. I've always had a herb garden; now I have containers on my patio with my must have herbs. It seems, everything tastes better with fresh herbs!
