Dinner in a flash.


We all have these nights...right?


I was feeling rushed tonight...no time to cook.
But I had some round steak that I needed to cook before....well, before you know what (before I had to throw it away)

My mom used to make a Swiss steak with round steak, onions and tomatoes...so that is exactly what I did.

While my grandson Camron watched....he ate his snack. A sliced tomato. His favorite...go figure??




He won't eat spaghetti sauce to save his soul. Or ranch dressing. Or sauce of any kind whatsoever. I told him tonight...you know, you're Uncle Mark won't eat tomatoes. He doesn't like them.
Cam thought for a moment and said, "hmm. He's weird."
But touch this Swiss Steak? Not with a sauce on it....
I took the round steak and dredged it in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.
Browned it in some oil.




Added some sliced onions.




Then a can of stewed tomatoes.




I let it simmer on the stove top, covered, for an hour and a half, made some rice and that was dinner tonight.



It was good. Simple, not fancy, but really good. Just like my mom used to make.

This was my husband's plate...he likes to pepper everything TO DEATH.

That looks great! I love buzz cuts on little boys. When the weather warms up, off goes my boys hair! Thanks for your well wishes, I'm feeling slightly better today. I've turned the corner at last!

Swiss steak is so good and tasty. I haven't had it in a long time and want to make it again soon.
