This one was a gooder. Followed the recipe almost exactly, just only had 1 tomato. I found that it was actually tastier after a night in the fridge. I guess it gave all of the flavours a chance to come out. Will definitely be making this one again.

We give this a very strong four stars! I made this tonight for dinner and was very pleased with the results. The coke and the soy sauce adds wonderful undertones to the lovely beefy-tasting sauce. I did end up with a lot of sauce (my hsband made comment that I made "stew" out of his steak!); I am more used to a drier-type pepper steak, however, that would not prevent me from making this again. The acidity of the tomatoes was a nice touch, and the proportion of meat to vegetables was right on the mark. The overall taste of this dish was very well rounded. I served this with plain skin-on boiled potatoes which soaked up the sauce nicely. I am looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!
