This was a hit over the weekend when we had guests for dinner. Made 2 changes, I sauteed some veggies (pak choy, spring onions, red cabbage and red capsicum) and added drained sauce then heated until buubbly. I grilled the whole rump steak to med rare and then sliced very finely ( always across the grain!! ) and added to sauce and veg just before serving. Meat was the tenderest ever and veggies had a nice crunch! Only comment would be maybe make extra sauce if going to add veggies, so there is plenty to serve with rice or noodles! Will make again, a real nice flavour!!
