There are a lot of swiss steak recipes here, but all of them have a lot of "stuff" in it. My grandfather was a very picky eater, and this is the way my grandmother made swiss steak. Granddaddy loved it, and we all did, too. In fact, my sister always wanted Swiss Steak for her birthday dinner. The gravy is best on mashed potatoes, but it's not too shabby over rice, either. This is not fancy, but it sure is good! My grandmother used her home-canned tomatoes in this, but it's almost as good with store-bought.
