YUM! I used round steak, sliced extra thin by the butcher. I must admit I thought that the vinegar would be too much, and didn't add the full amount at first, though when tasting the sauce, a half cup is right on--so I added the remainder! I shoulda followed the recipe from the start! :-) I used red wine vinegar. The sauce that this makes was great with Mirjam's Greek-Style Oven Fries. This one will be a regular at our house! Thanks for another fabulous recipe, S'kat!
OOPS, I forgot to comment on this wonderful dish. I used a round steak also and cut the ingredients in half since I only used 1 1/2 lbs. of meat, the meat was so tender we could cut it with a fork. This made alot of gravy so I served it over rice and had some french bread to soak up the great tasting gravy! So simple and excellent taste too, thanks S'kat.
The vinegar was not a flavor that me or my husband enjoyed, however my 13 yr old daughter and 2 year old son liked it alot!
