I've known of the recipe for years. Just got round to making it from your recipe. Hubby and I are so glad I did. Loved it on our steak. Now thinking of what else to have it on. Thanks Ailsa

Thank you for a really great recipe. I decided to substitute the tomatoes for a tin of mexican style tomatoes and left off the tabasco sauce, it was quite a bit spicier than the typical restaurant sauce (due to my substitutions I am sure) but DH thought it was great and insisted that the recipe be added to the file IMMEDIATELY!

SO YUMMY!!!! The initial name for this sauce put me off but after my husband made it I couldn't get enough of it! As it simmers down the flavours develop and intensify and just become one fabulous immulsion. We added bacon at the very start with the onion and used wine vinegar and gooseberry chutney. Thank you so much for a truly delicious sauce!!! Oh my goodness!!! We had this again tonight and the flavour was even better. We had it on lamb chops and baked potatoes. Fantastic!!!

Hubby gave this 5 thumbs up! I didn't have any chutney on hand but I subsituted 3 fruits apricot jam instead. It still turned out excellent. DH first had monkey gland steak in Durban's revolving restaurant and this is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing once again an awesome recipe.

We really enjoyed this. Made a large batch and used some to marinade steaks in, then offered the rest on the side and kept some in the refrigerator for marinating as and when required.

I have to admit that I added this recipe to my cookbook ONLY for the purpose of telling people that we were having "Monkeygland" sauce for dinner!!! I decided to pair it with swordfish instead of steak; it was the perfect blend of sweet and sour flavors. This one is definitely a keeper! Thanks! :)
