What a wonderful dish. My famiy loves it. I had my son and his familyover tonight and they took the recipe home with them. I wouldn't change a thing. A good warm and hearty meal that everyone in the family will enjoy. Thanl you so much for sharing it with us...KK
This was really tasty - served it over couscous with some mixed veges, only problem I had was that my meat chunks were far too large! I didn't bother with the garlic powder as I just used garlic paste, and I used fresh thyme, but rosemary paste.
Used Merlot.....used sirloin steak....used dried spices (rosemary and thyme)....recipe couldn't have been better !!!!! Fabulous....all loved... Served over egg noodles with "thickened" sauce....PERFECT
