“The recipe comes from my 1973 "The Good Housekeeping Cookbook" which was my one-and-only cookbook for many years, before the advent of the internet. I decided to make Swiss Steak, having not made it in many years, so I dug out this old cookbook buried in the back of a kitchen cabinet (you know, the ones above the refrigerator) to get my old time recipe. I still had a place marker on the page!”
