I found in the freezer…6 eye of round steaks…that I bought back in early September. The beautiful part is that I bought 6 eye of round steaks for just over $2! They came in 2 packages, each with 3 steaks and each just over $2. I used a $2 coupon for Private Selection beef from a Kroger mailer.
Can’t beat 6 eye of round steaks for just over $2!!!
I stopped by one of my favorite recipe sites, Elise’s Simply Recipes. I knew she would have a recipe for eye of round steaks, and she did! A Swiss Steak Recipe…that I modified based on what I had in the pantry, a can of mushrooms!
HELLO. Mushroom Swiss Steak. It’s nice to meet you!
You might be my new favorite meal!!!
