Tips for Swiss Steak Casserole

Seeing the steaks adds flavor through something called the Maillard reaction which caramelizes the beef. The recipe is simple but you can add any additional vegetables or herbs and spices you wish. The sauce is a quick rue made with butter, flour and broth which will naturally thicken the sauce. You can use any stewing meat or chuck for this recipe and it’s also great with pork.
