      Cooked everything as stated, except left out the celery. The meat was a little dry--I used round steak but that could just be the cut of meat. At the very end of cooking, I thickened the sauce with cornstarch and served over rice. Thanks, Julesong!

      This was a very good principle recipe. By that I mean you can tweak spices to your liking but, as is it is yummy. I have modd'd this with a sprinkle of cayenne, tossed in dried parsley, and some nice deep cumin. You can use this same "technique" and make wonderful stew like dishes. I think this is the ultimate comfort food for beginners. Thank You JULEZ!!!!!

      Used thin sirloin steaks and 1/2 the pepper and this was still very good. Thanks!
