I was so excited to make this recipe with so many favorite ingredients but the first time I made it I blamed the results on tough meat from the butcher. However I made it a second time with more tenderized meat and it was just bland. Maybe some more spices to add richness to it??? Read More

I read the reviews and improvised a bit...I used a dark ale and 1/4 water with 1/4 broth. I caramelized the onions and slow cooked the peppers separately by sauteeing it for 20 minutes. I then added it with the steak. For an added kick I added three serrano peppers to the flour mixture. Came out pretty good! Read More

I made this for my husband and I for dinner one night. Didn't tell him what I was making but he could smell the "delicious smells!" Very good recipe. Leftovers were delicious too! Read More

Recipe is fine I added cremé fraiche at end and thickened a little. I'd cut my meat smaller next time as I like not to have to cut it while eating a stew. Would also try it as a casserole in the oven as I think the flavours would mature more. Read More

It was easy to make and very delicious. We ate dinner later than planned because the preparation took a little bit longer than 5 min. You have to keep in mind that veggies need to be cut and chopped it takes longer than stated at least for me. Read More
