Swiss steak

This makes a nice meal out of a bland round steak. This can be made and simmered on the stove or in a crock pot but, adjust the cooking time. In my version of this recipe, I like to blend my tomatoes in the blender for just a bit to slightly puree it; making it a little saucier….just a personal preference. :) Serve with mashed potatoes, or over noodles, or rice.
