My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Swiss Steak Burgundy

Everyone loves a good Swiss Steak. Round steak is economical and the simplicity of this dish makes it great for any night of the week. Try adding a little wine to the sauce and see the difference it makes. Not just for this dish, but try it in almost any dish with a sauce.

Swiss Steak Burgundy
4 servings
print recipe

4 servings, round steak, 1/2-inch thick
1 whole tomato, peeled and cut in 8 sections
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cups mushrooms, coarse chopped
1/2 green pepper, cut Julienne style
1 cup burgundy
1 cup water 1 heaping tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper

Salt and pepper the meat and flour well on both side. Brown quickly on each side in 3tablespoons shortening. Remove from the skillet and put into a roasting pan. Remove the excess fat from the skillet and add the wine and water. Place the rest of the ingredients over the meat and pour in the liquid from the skillet. Cover the roaster and put in a hot oven , 400 degrees F, and cook for 30minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until the meat is tender and most of the liquid evaporated to about half of the original amount. Remove the steak onto a serving platter. Skim the excess fat from the sauce. Adjust the seasoning and divide over each serving of steak. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve.
