Swiss Steak...

4 to 8 small steaks (portioned round steak, minute steak, or cube steak)
1/3 c flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
3 Tblsp olive oil
1 onion, large chopped
1 green bell pepper, large chopped
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
4 to 8 potatoes, washed and halved or quartered

Combine flour, and spices on a plate or pie plate.  Dredge the steaks to cover in flour.  Heat the oil in a pan.  Place the steaks into the hot oil in a single layer, and brown each side (this may have to be done in batches).  When brown, remove the steaks to a plate and set aside.  Place the chopped onion and pepper into the same hot pan, and let cook slightly, stirring and loosening the browned bits from the pan bottom.  If using a pan that can be placed in the oven (like my favorite old cast iron skillet) add the meat back into pan, and fit the potatoes over and/or among, and pour tomato sauce over all (you can place everything in a casserole dish for baking if you'd prefer)*.  Cover and bake at 325° for two hours or so.   

My notes:  You could also place in a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hrs.  You don't have to cook the potatoes with the meat, but I love the flavors they absorb.
