Swiss Steak: What does that mean to you?

shanagain | Nov 11, 201104:39 PM

I had a craving for my mom's swiss steak - which curiously is round steak pounded thin in salt/pepper/flour, then browned a bit before being covered in tomatoes, bell pepper, onion (and I SWEAR she used to put carrots in there, but she denies this), a couple of bay leaves and my own addition of a couple of chopped jalapenos and chopped celery.

So, why "that" would be "Swiss Steak" is beyond me (ahh, the 70's?), but more important... what is Swiss Steak to you? And when did it "become a thing" in your family?
