Personal Notes:
Originated by my Grandmother Scheibel, this recipe was served occasionally on the farm in O'Fallon, IL. Beef was a luxury and Swiss Steak was served only a time or two during the cooler time of year. My father modified the recipe by adding the Mexican tomatoes and wine. Serve this substantial dish with mashed potatoes (and a veg/salad), the sauce (gravy) is delicious. Left over sauce can also be used to make meat loaf.
