Marie, this is excellent. We really loved it. The spices worked perfectly together with the potatoes and beef. So comforting and so good. I did have to cover the pan and cook for two hour due to using a deep, round casserole dish. I would recommend a pyrex 13x9 pan instead so the meat gets tender quicker. I used a blade steak that was marbled with fat so it came out very tender. Thanks.

Fantastico! This reminded me of the way my Italian mom cooked steak when I was a kid. Italian soul food at its finest. The only change I made was to up the tomatoes to a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes. I enjoyed this dish with a glass of dry red wine and lots of good Italian bread to sop up the juices. Marie, thanks for bringing back happy memories--I will make this treat again!
