Swiss Steak A.K.A. "Ultimate Comfort Food"

1-2 pounds cube steaks
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper (I use garlic salt and lemon pepper)
4-6 ribs celery, chopped
1 large yellow onion, sliced thin
1 large (16 0z) can of diced tomatoes. I use the ones with herbs and spices
1 small can tomato sauce
4 TB worcestershire
1 TB Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup water or red wine

Cut meat into finger size pieces
place in large plastic bag
sprinkle flour, salt and pepper in bag. Shake bag to coat meat.
Meanwhile, heat several tablespoons of shortening in large frying pan.
Fry meat on all sides till brown.
Cover meat with celery and onion.
In 4 cup measuring cup mix tomatoes, sauce, worcestershire sauce, and balsamic vinegar.

Pour 1/4 cup water or wine into pan with meat and veggies. Scrape bottom to loosen bits. Top with tomato mixture. Stir. Turn down heat and let cook on low-medium for 1-2 hours. Stir occasionally. During last half hour, remove lid to allow juice to thicken.

Serve over mashed potatoes.

So yummy!
