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! Nancy...12/5/12
