Recently, someone gave us some round steak. So, I decided to make Swiss Steak. I cut the steak into cutlets and laid them in the bottom of the crock pot. I seasoned it with salt and pepper. I chopped one small onion and 2 tomatoes onto the top. I still have a few tomatoes left from the garden, so I used those. When I don’t have any from the garden, I use canned. I put a carton of cream of mushroom soup on top and turned it on to low for 8 hours. My sister had ordered a case from Amazon, and shared several cartons with me. I can’t tolerate any gluten, so the Pacific Foods brand is the one I use.
That evening, we had the Swiss Steak with cauliflower from the huge box a friend gave me a couple of weeks ago. Tonight, I thickened the juices with sweet rice flour to make gravy and we had the rest of it with mashed potatoes and home-canned green beans. I’m looking for ways to use the 50 pounds of red potatoes I bought for $10 a week ago. I was delighted to get 2 dinners for almost free and they were really tasty, too.
