This is good crowd-pleasin' food. It fed 5 of us with at least two more servings left over. I sliced my sirloin while still slightly frozen (to get thin slices) and then tossed it with 3 cloves of minced garlic about an hour before cooking. There was a hint of bitterness to the dish when we first started eating, but the taste improved as it sat a bit. Overall a solid 4 stars for easy prep and homey, comforting fare. Next time I think I'll marinate the beef to give it a flavor infusion. I served this with cornbread and sliced cucumbers. Thanks for the recipe!Reply
