SWISS STEAK SAN DIEGO
One award goes to Mrs. Bill Vizner of San Diego. Mrs. Vizner writes: "I wait anxiously for my husband who is an engineer on the S.D. and A.E.RY. to bring home the S. P. Bulletin. I enjoy the magazine as a whole, but turn first
to the SP Family at Home. I'd like to pass along my recipe for Swiss Steak to others who, like myself, follow this page each month."
Mrs. Vizner's Recipe
First I prepare 2 lbs. top round steak, 1-1/2 inches thick, by pounding into it 1/2 cup flour, and salt and pepper to suit the taste. Next I heat 1/2 cup oil in a heavy iron skillet (don't use one with a wooden handle!) and in it brown the meat on both sides. Then I cover the meat with 1/2 cup chopped celery, 1/2 cup chopped onion and a small glass of claret wine.
I then cover the skillet tightly and put it into a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 2 hours. At serving time I remove meat and add 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon catsup, and 1 small can mushrooms to the sauce left in the skillet, with enough water to make gravy, thickening it to the proper consistency with flour-&-water paste. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
Mrs. William Vizner, one of this month's recipe winners, looks approvingly at her cake mixture. This was probably the dessert for her delicious prize-winning "Swiss Steak San Diego" recipe, printed on this page. Mrs. Vizner is wife of SD&AE engineer.
