1. Jana's French Toast

From, "Tell Me More - A Cookbook Spiced with Cajun Traditions and Food Memories" published in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


10 – 12 slices stale French bread
5 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Cooking oil
Confectioner's sugar

Slice the French bread before it is stale, otherwise the crust crumbles and the bread slices lose the crust.  Mix eggs, vanilla, and sugar.  Place one slice of stale bread in the egg batter until the bread has "soaked up" the batter, about 15 minutes.  Then fry the soaked slices on hot, oiled griddle.  Fry the bread about 2 minutes on each side.  Remove and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and serve while warm.
2.  Jeff's Swiss Steak

Categories: Beef

Yield: 4 Servings      

2 lb Round steak, tenderized
2 c  Flour
1/2 tb Garlic powder
1/2 ts Salt     
4 tb Cooking oil
15 oz Can Tomato Sauce
8 oz Canned Tomato Paste
28 oz Can whole tomatoes, drained optional
1/2 c Onion, chopped fine
1/4 c Green bell pepper, chop fine 1 tb Worcestershire sauce
1/2 ts Lemon juice, RealLemon
Pepper, to taste

This is one of those "precious" recipes that my mother used to cook.

After tenderizing the round steak, dredge in mixture of the flour, garlic powder and salt.

Brown the outside of the meat quickly in hot oil.

Add the onions, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, tomato paste, tomato sauce, pepper and tomatoes (if desired.. chop as they cook). Add water if necessary to cover the meat.

Simmer for 2 hours on low heat.

Add the bell pepper and cook an additional 15-20 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes and rolls.

Bell pepper may be increased to 1/2 cup if desired. (I do)

Enjoy! - Jeff Duke
