Meat and Potatoes ~ Satisfy!

Swiss Steak with mashed potatoes satisfies a meat and potato man like myself. For this dish, I like to use good quality round steak with little marbling as possible. Prior to cooking, marinate with olive oil, a dash of balsamic vinegar and a several sprinkles of meat tenderizer. When you are ready to cook, get out a large stove top pot with lid. Then cut your round steak into about palm sized pieces. Pour some olive oil in your pot and set on med heat. Toss in one whole chopped onion, saute until browned. Lay in your steak, brown on both sides.

Next, pour over the steak 1 and 1/2 cup of beef stock and add 1 small can of Red Gold tomato paste. This amount of liquid and paste provides a thick gravy. Cover and simmer on the stove for about 45-50 min on low heat. In the meantime, boil potatoes to mash. If you like, prepare a green veggie side or salad. And... Bob's your uncle or maybe he is not; just a saying I remember hearing from my aunt who was a great meat and potato cook in her own right.
