    Dee514's Note:

    This is a flavorful recipe for less tender cuts of beef or veal. I usually prepare this dish using beef chuck steak, beef round steak or veal chops. This can be cooked either on top of the stove or in the oven.

      Very tasty! Based upon one of the reviews, I decided to add more liquid for a sauce, so I added about a 1/2 cup of wine and some water. The beef I used was apparently pretty tough, so I ended up cooking for over 3 hours in oven at 325 degrees. I liked the simplicity of the recipe and I think I will have my teenage DD make it sometime. I added precooked penne (on hand from a previous meal) so it truly was a ONE POT MEAl SENSATION! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      We enjoyed this for a dinner, was nice that it is basically a one pot mess. I used two round steaks, and two cans of diced unseasoned tomatoes. I could not find canned plum tomatoes at my store. I used red bell pepper just as a personal preference. There was very little sauce to speak of, adding wine or broth might be a nice addition if you need a sauce/gravy.
