Mushroom Swiss Steak

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!!!
