This is very good, it has a taste somewhat like vindaloo, I imagine because of the vinegar. We were suspicious of the amount of vinegar so added it some at a time until we felt we were at the right place, which was half of the called for amount. We also used sirloin in this, which was a good thing, as it cut about 45 minutes off the cooking time to get the meat tender. Has a nice heat level! Thanks for sharing-
