Tried this on a whim and it was superb. I didn't even do the presentation and it was still a hit.

Gooood schtuff! I didn't have bitters on hand, so I left 'em out. Served these up with some broccoli and a baked potato, (I had a sweet potato, which was also good) and it was like eating in a good steakhouse without trying to fight the Saturday night dinner crowd. We'll definitely be making this again!

Very easy to make and doesn't take up too much time. Recommend it for an easy dinner. Tastes great with a good imported ale ie, New Castle
