“The *must use* ingredient for this contest was a real challenge for me since I am in the apparent minority that does not like the American kitchen staple known as ketchup or (catsup). All at. Not even a little. I had also never used, nor heard of, one of the list ingredients, Ponzu Lime Citrus Dressing. However my adventurous spirit took over, and I came up with this delicious, decidedly NOT gourmet, take on Swiss steak. The steak was so tender you could cut it with a fork.”
