Swiss Steak Burgundy is a cross between Swiss Steak and Beef Burgundy. It is super good.
If you know what to combine in a recipe, you can make an amazing dinner even if you don’t have most of the ingredients (patting myself on the back now).
You see, I wanted to make Swiss Steak. The Joy of Cooking (one of Don’s and my all-time favorite cookbooks) recipe called for carrots and celery, and suggested serving it over mashed potatoes. I had none of those ingredients, but our supper was delicious. I did have tomatoes, red wine, garlic, onions, and a few other ingredients. As you can see, I served it over rotini pasta, and that was a good choice.
I wouldn’t exactly call it Swiss Steak; it’s more like a Beef Burgundy, but it was very good!
