New Dish #2 -- Swiss Steak
|Half of the little steak fell apart when I pulled it out of the crock pot. :) |
While my parents were down here visiting, she suggested that I could make Swiss Steak in the crock pot. I had always felt like it was a bit fussy, and since I don't do fussy, never bothered to attempt it. However, when my mom started to explain what she did, I was all, "OH. EM. GEE! I could totally do this!"
The good news is that it is as easy as my mother suggested. This biggest issue was the tenderizing of the meat -- I sent flour EVERY WHERE! The bad news is that while it tasted fine, it didn't taste like mom always made.
Personally, I sort of feel like she left a key ingredient out of the instructions. But perhaps it really does just taste better when mom makes it.
At any rate, 2 down, 98 new dishes to go!
