Sunday After Church Swiss Steak

Kathie Carr


It was either Swiss steak or chicken after church on Sundays at Shupert's Honey Farm. This is a good and easy recipe.

Mom used a less expensive cut of beef, like a chuck or round steak, and cooked it long and slow.

It was always served with mashed potatoes. Yum.... comfort food!
