This was DELICIOUS just the way it's written. I completely disagree that it's too strong. I grilled my steak on the George Foreman grill sliced it into strips and tossed it in the sauce. Then I turned off the burner covered up the skillet and left it alone for about 10 minutes. SCRUMPTIOUS!!!! Read More

Great idea putting wine in powder gravy but this recipe needs a little work for my taste. It came out REALLY strong I wound up having to water it down quite a bit but it did taste very good. I'd reccommend cutting the wine in half and compensating with water. Read More

I read the recipe wrong and thought it was marinade so I marinated my steaks in the sauce before cooking them. It was a little thick for a marinade but it tasted really really good after grilling!! Read More

I added 1 tablespoon of butter at the very end to make it more like a french sauce - otherwise simple. I didn't have beef stock on hand and this was a quick and easy substitute. Thank you. Read More

I added a little minced garlic and butter but the dry gravy mix made this a little too salty. My husband enjoyed it but probably won't make this again. Read More

this was a clever idea. I added more wine than water and a little bit of sugar to make it more like a port wine sauce. Also added 1 Tbsp butter at the end. will definately make again. Read More

The fiancé liked this but I thought it was sooooo winey. It never cooked off and tasted like flavors that didn't mix too well. I followed the reipe exactly. Read More
