This is an old family recipe, and a real comfort food. The steak is lightly fried with Garlic Pepper Seasoning and then slowly baked in a tomato-onion sauce perfectly spiced with Thyme, Marjoram and Paprika. The result is a delicious, tender steak and vegetable meal. Serve it with mashed potatoes for Swiss Steak perfection.
