I just tried this recipe only I got it from a Los Angeles Times article from a few years ago. I think the recipe they had forgot to mention the Hot Sauce. Any ways, this recipe tastes pretty good. I think that people might need to look for the red Madeira wine because the sauce is not has red if we use the regular Madeira which is what I used since I don't know much about wines(even after I asked the lady at the store if there are any other Madeira and she told me this is the one but doing my Internet search...I realized that there is a red Madeira.)Any ways...I saved this recipe from the Los Angeles Times which is 95% like this one only the LA Times didn't mention the strong coffee which I will try next time. And I will add the Hot Sauce too. I actually did my recipe with fresh Virginia ham that the lady at the store sliced for me and that gave it a rich broth taste. But then I told the lady to give me a thick slice so I can chop it up...but it seemed to taste better with the thin sliced ham. Here I am just writing and writing.
This was fantastic. I used white wine and added bacon with the ham. I also used a dark roast coffee. I added Asiago cheese and Monterrey jack cheese with the Parmesan in the grits.. .
Everyone loved it.
Great recipe! easily adaptable to low fat as well without losing the taste! thanks for sharing!
Cooked this for the Super Bowl supper and family loved it. The sauce never got thick for me and didn't have red Maderia but flavor was good. I might add some nice smoked bacon or panchetta next time.
