This was not good.No one here would eat it and my kids are not picky. It tasted pretty much like red wine vinegar. Maybe using plain red wine would be better but I don't think it's even worth the effort of playing around with this recipe. I pitched it. Read More

Great use for a lower quality cut of meat! I also added some sugar to cut the vinegar. Very enjoyable meal! Read More

I used thin cut chuck steaks and only marinated them for an hour and 20 minutes. I added splenda instead of sugar and used just a smidge more than 1/2 a teaspoon. They turned out delicious! MmmmmMmmMmmm! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I thought it was easy quick and tasty - I didn't feed it to kids so I'm just guessing they'd like it. Read More

Made this using plain Cabernet Sauvignon re wine instead of the vinegar. I tenderized the meat before marinating in the wine. Using a large freezer bag made it easier to marinate using less of the wine. Turned out very tasty. Added a little tabasco to the marinade to give it a little bite. Loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

I added a few things to it Onions and Red Bell Peppers.. I must say...It turned out Wonderful. I did add a bit of water to the mix. Read More

I don't usually write reviews but this was so bad no one would eat it. No one likes the taste of vinegar and that's all it was. So frustrating to have wasted a whole package of meat. Read More
