      Delicious steaks! I am Portuguese so imagine :D I did use some round steaks I had from the butcher shop. Used 4 nice big pieces and then sliced in half, cuz there were many people to feed LOL (helping sister pack, and I offered to cook) I did not fry them I BBQ. I browned some onions and Portuguese Sweet Pimento Paste before adding the wine. Yummy, we poured the sauce over the steak. Thank you for posting and will make again. Oh and like Fruity Ana said......prosciutto IS very much part of authentic portuguese. :) Made by member of "Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5
