Baked Steak and Potatoes in Tomato Sauce Recipe

This is a dish that my mother prepared for many years. It was my favorite meal, so she always made it for me on my birthday. It makes cheaper cuts of round steak come out very tender. I now cook this dish for my own family, but I still make sure I have it on my birthday in memory of my mom.
