Monday's Meal

So today I thought I'd share my swiss steak's not mine in the sense I created it, but mine because I collected it from a Southern Living magazine. Great magazine by the way, full of great recipes and they are kind enough to put an annual compilation of them together for us. Anyways this is so yummy and so easy. Great served over rice or egg noodles.

Smothered Swiss Steak
1/2 tsp salt
6 cube steaks
1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp of seasoned pepper
4 1/2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
1 (14.5 oz) can of petite diced tomatoes
1 (12 oz) can of cola soft drink
1 tbsp of beef bullion granules
2 tbsp of tomato paste

Season steak on both sides w/the salt. Combine the flour and pepper in shallow dish and then dredge the steaks through it.
Brown your steaks in a medium high skillet in about 2-3 tbsp of oil for about 3 minutes on each side. Drain drippings from skillet reserving 1 tbsp in the skillet. Next cook the onions and peppers in the reserved drippings until softened, you may need to add the rest oil now. Add the next 4 ingredients and bring it to a boil to thicken, stir to keep from sticking on the bottom. Now add the steaks and remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook for about 30 minutes. Check for doneness of the meat. Cook a bit longer if need be. Serve over rice or egg noddles along with a nice green salad. Enjoy!
