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!

How to Make SWISS STEAK,with a sweet surprise twist!

Step-by-Step

  1. With a fork, pierce steak at 1/2 inch intervals,
    on both sides.
    Cut into serving size portions.

    In a large bowl, blend sesonings, tomatoes, water, pineapple juice.
    Add steak, and refrigerate for for 1/2 hour.
    Then remove steak, ...Save the liquid.
    ..celery, carrots, onions and mushrooms are added later.

    Bring to a low boil,reduce heat.
    Cover and simmer 1 hour, or until steak is tender.
    Turning occasionally.

  3. I serve this with mashed potatoes and green beans.
    It is also great with rice.
