    A great recipe I've used since seeing it on Cook's Country! I use a 1/2 c of red wine to deglaze after browning the meat and add a heaping tablespoon of Marmite to the sauce before cooking. We love it over rice with some steamed broccoli. Great hearty comfort food and It freezes well--what more could you want in a recipe??

    Such an amazing recipe! I have made this for years since I first saw it on Cook's Country. Cook it "low and slow" in the oven, and serve it with mashed potatoes for total comfort food. The meat should fall off the fork when you poke it in the dutch oven or covered pan. Make sure it's well sealed during cooking to keep in the juices. A great fall and winter recipe, I cook it with fire-roasted canned tomatoes. Spectacular!

    I really like this recipe. I was not aware of cooking with blade steak until I saw this on the show. I think it is super tender and makes great swiss steak. The changes I made was I brought it to a boil and then lowered to a low simmered on the stove.(It's too hot to heat up the house.) I also did not add the flour until the last 20 minutes. I am gluten free so I used rice flour to thicken at the end. I also added 1/2 cup of sherry to the stock mix. Definetly a keeper. Thanks for posting threeovens.
