A good basic recipe as posted the only changes I made were that I cooked my bacon in the oven till crispy and once cooled chopped. I seared the floured strips in batches (adding more oil as required) and then proceded from step 4 adding 2 cups of stock (water mixed with powdered beef stock) and simmered for about 1/2 hour with the lid partially off the pan, gave a good stir and then put the lid on and set it at just a burble (barely simmering) for the rest of cooking time. I used fresh swiss brown mushrooms and lean round steak but felt it was missing something and think a good slurp of paprika could lift it - I did sprinkle some over the finished portion but it really needed to be added into the cooking process but overall a simple good midweek and econimic recipe and would recommend but we really enjoyed the addition of the bacon as it added a little smoky flavour to it and with the paprika I think it would be tops., made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
