Vintage Swiss Steak Recipe
This is the Best Savory Swiss Steak recipe that my mom made when I was a child. It is absolutely savory as the title suggests with an amazing creole flare. The meat literally falls apart after baking in the gravy and veggies with a fork and is mouth-watering!
A different way to make Swiss Steak
Using an Aluminum foil pouch to cook this meat and vegetable dish helps seal in all the flavors and keeps the meat super moist. The added bonus is the easy clean-up work after dinner!
I prefer this recipe over other stovetop versions because it is so simple to put together. Once it is sealed in the aluminum foil, it just bakes. No need to check on it until the timer goes off! Then you simply pull it out of the oven, open the foil and transfer it to a serving platter or directly to the plate.
The ingredients are all typical staple items that you may already have on hand. Which is the perfect reason to give it a try!
Also, a little crusty bread served alongside would be good for soaking up the juices of the long-simmered gravy. - Just a thought!
