Swiss Steak

quick and easy Swiss SteakEveryone around here is pretty adventurous when it comes to eating, but honestly when I ask them for dinner suggestions it’s always comfort food.  Swiss Steak is the ultimate comfort food, smash some redskins, add green beans or any favorite veggie and you are good to go!!

quick and easy Swiss SteakCreamy, saucy, meaty, gravy, buttery, custardy, luverly all words that come to mind when I think of comfort food.  Swiss steak was a pretty regular member of my moms dinner rotation when I was growing up, along with spaghetti, bbq chicken legs, chop suey (which I have never made), chicken pot pie, pot roast, chili and many more saucy dishes!  Ya know what else about comfort food, it always seems to be just as good or better the next day!  Which is good if you have a busy schedule and your family will eat leftovers!

quick and easy Swiss SteakCome to momma!!  I’m not sure how you are feeling about the state of the union, but it’s state is making me cringe and run for cover.  What is going on?  If home for you is not the good ol’ US of A, well then let’s just say some comfort food is going to be much needed come November 2, 2016.  I’m going to make a buffet of comfort food.  Come one!  Come all!

quick and easy Swiss SteakEnough about politics, let’s get back to the Swiss Steak….wondering why they call it Swiss, is this a common dish for the Swiss?  Hold on I’m going to googliscious this factoid.

It’s a mystery.

I could not find any reliable information on where Swiss Steak got its name.  Wikipedia did say that in Switzerland this same dish would be called Roast Mincemeat or Braten Hackfleisch. So there you have it!! Senseless information served up with delicious comfy food.

Did I mention that this meal is actually quick and easy?  If you can fry a hamburger or cut up a few mushrooms then this recipe is all yours!

    I will have to try this, I have made swiss steak or salisbury steak often over the years mostly using cream soups. My ultimate comfort food is chicken and dumplings, still trying to find a perfect healthy version.

    You are right about needing comfort food this fall. I try to ignore the national circus. I have been looking for a recipe as I grew up on kind of food and I can’t wait to share it with my kids. Thank you for posting this as sounds just like my moms.

    This is really good. My. Picky 16 year old ate 3 of the steaks. Instead of fresh mushrooms I used canned and I used chicken broth. It was still really great! Another easy recipe to put in my recipe list. Thanks!
