Notice of Changes

You will notice that some of my albums are "empty" on my Facebook page and that some pages and pictures are missing on here and on Fibro, Fit and Fab!. Don't worry - they won't stay that way. :) In light of some recent events, I've had to watermark my photos and designed images. Until that is done and I get a chance to upload them, my FREE Fibro Banners and Badges and Inspirational Designs {By Me} pages will be down on Fibro, Fit and Fab!, and the albums under the same (or almost the same) names on my Facebook page will be empty, and pictures will be deleted and watermarked at various times for as long as it takes to get that done. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for understanding! In the mean time, if there is an image you would like that you saw or have an idea for a new one, feel free to email me or leave me a comment, and I'll do what I can to get one to you. :)

At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge. Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU. DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON THIS INFORMATION AS INGREDIENTS AND INFORMATION DO CHANGE. Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs.

Easy Swiss Steak (Soy, Fish, Nut, Milk and Egg-Free)

This recipe is a slightly modified version of one that I got from my Granny. It was one that I got with basically just ingredients listed, so I had to do some trial and error. :) I hope that you like this version, or tweak it to fit your own tastes. Please note that this recipe is only soy-free if you make sure to use all soy-free ingredients, and is fish, nut, milk and egg-free.

Easy Swiss Steak
1 lb. ground chuck or ground venison or cube steaks

1/2 Cup soy-free flour

1 teaspoon paprika (if desired)

1 teaspoon onion salt (if desired) (I recommend McCormick's)

1 teaspoon garlic salt (if desired) (I recommend McCormick's)

1 teaspoon celery salt (if desired) (I recommend McCormick's)

1/2 teaspoon pepper (if desired)

1 teaspoon parsley flakes (if desired)

1 to 2 Tablespoons olive oil

1/2 Cup diced yellow onion

1/2 Cup diced celery

1/2 Cup diced carrots


Tomato Juice (I recommed Campbell's)

Salt (if desired)

Pepper (if desired)

1 Tablespoon soy-free flour (if desired)

mashed potatoes, noodles or baked potatoes (if desired)

1. Divide meat into 1/4 lb. patties unless using cube steaks.

2. In small bowl, mix flour with paprika, onion salt, garlic salt, celery salt, pepper and parsley (if desired, or just use flour) and dredge patties.

3. In medium skillet, fry patties until they are browned well on both sides using the olive oil. (You can drain the excess oil off at this point or not; up to you.)

4. Add onion, carrots and celery to the pot. (You can either let them soften a bit at this point or go right to the next step.)

5. Add enough water and tomato juice to almost cover the meat. (How much of each you use is based on personal preference. You can also use a can of diced tomatoes instead or along with or all water or all tomato juice. Just make sure that you only ALMOST cover the meat. If you add too much liquid, it won't boil down enough to have a nice gravy and may taste a bit watered down.)

6. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Skip this step if you don't want the extra salt or pepper.)

7. Cover the skillet and simmer until the meat is done and the vegetables are to desired tenderness.

8. If you find that the gravy is too thin:
Remove the meat and set aside. Take about 1/2 cup of the liquid out of the pan, put it into a small bowl and add 1 Tablespoon flour to it. Whisk together well, then return flour mixture to the pan and whisk in. Allow mixture to boil for at least 1 minute, stirring constantly, until the gravy thickens to desired thickness. You can return the meat at this point or not, your choice.

9. If desired, serve with mashed potatoes, noodles or baked potatoes.
