Smothered Swiss Steak

"These cube steaks are cooked slowly to make them nice and tender. The acid from the tomatoes and the cola help to tenderize the meat. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice to soak up the sauce."

    Delish! I couldn't stop eating it! The cola made the sauce very tasty and just a little sweet, which I thought was wonderful. I did make a few changes based off of the ingredients I had on hand. Instead of salting the steaks, I added 1 tsp of Lawry's season salt to the flour mixture before dredging the steaks. To the veggie mixture, I add 2 chopped celery stalks and 2 chopped carrots, since I like a lot of veggies. After sauteeing the veggies, I sprinkled 2 tsps of the leftover flour mixture on them just to ensure the sauce wouldn't be too runny. I also added a dash of Montreal Steak Seasoning at the end to give it a little more salty flavor. This is definitely a keeper!!!!

    Made this last night for dinner and I must say it tastes very similar to my FIL recipe witht he addition of the cola. The cola gave it a bit of a sweet taste but it also tenderized the meat so it cut with a fork. I really enjoyed this comfort food. I haven't had a good cube steak in years and as we got a 1/2 a cow just before summer this is a great recipe to keep on hand to use to make the cube steaks and a few other less tender cuts of meat. Served this with Recipe #409649<br/>. and fresh cut asparagus. Thank you for sharing. Made for ZWT 2011
