Swiss Steak Supper

I love my slow cooker! Between it and my bread machine, I can have a full course meal on the table without a whole lot of fuss.
Friday, I had to go out of town for the day. I knew I wouldn't have any time to prepare a meal when I came home, so I decided to pop this recipe in my slow cooker. It only took about 15 minutes of prep time (and a very quick photo shoot!)  After I left a 'DO NOT LIFT THIS LID! YOU'LL SEE IT WHEN IT'S DONE!" note (for the hubby and son) taped to the little knob on the glass top, I headed out the door!
When I came home, the house smelled so good and we were starving! I served it up with some dinner rolls that I prepared the night before and placed in the fridge.

I definitely earned more brownie points with this meal!
