When the weather is turning, and the cold winds are blowing...and snow is a comin.
To me it is time for good old comfort food.Along with stews and soups, what could be better than a SWISS STEAK recipe, with a surprise twist!
My recipe has an unusual because I added pineapple juice...that was left over from the HOLIDAY PINEAPPLE PIE, I baked last week.
Grandma taught me...
Waste not...Want not!! ..HA!
This really gives a great added flavor to this recipe.
Please enjoy!
