Simple Swiss Steak Recipe (

I promise I haven’t abandoned you all, but life is once again just a little overwhelming (I know…what else is new?). This week will provide some answers for us in terms of a few huge changes that could be happening, so I think I will be glad when this week is over. 🙂 This also means that I have been pretty stressed the last few weeks and, as most people do, in times of stress, I turn to food for comfort.

Especially comfort food.

What’s more comforting than meat cooked slowly with a bunch of vegetables and seasonings, served over a giant mound of mashed potatoes? Not much, in my mind (aside from chocolate, maybe :)). I love Swiss steak because the ingredients are simple, I usually have them on hand, and it’s pretty brainless to make. Meaning that even in my sleep-deprived state, I can still manage to get it on the table in an edible state.
