I had some cube steak in the freezer which I normally turn into Country Fried Steak. However, I was feeling a bit adventurous.
So, what to do with my cube steak? After poking around the internet, I came up with Swiss steak. This was a dish I knew my hubby would love. I didn’t however, feel like jumping through all the steps of standard Swiss Steak. So, I made my own recipe that was super easy to make. That’s where the “Mock” comes from!
If you want Swiss Steak but are short on time, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe.
