Swiss Steak ~ Gluten Free or Traditional Recipe

This is in memory of my mom Carol (1947-1987). She was the best cook I ever met!

It is a great comfort dish and I often take this to people who need a meal during a hard time. I usually serve with green beans, noodles or mashed potatoes. and gluten free baguette.
