  1. Although I seemed to have screwed this up royally, it still came out absolutely delicious. My first mistake that I didn't reach the directions properly and added both tablespoons of oil to the marinade. (I also used sunflower oil because I was out of peanut oil.) I marinated the beef overnight and proceeded as directed. Even though I had diced my potatoes rather small, they still took a while to cook and all my water had evaporated. I ended up adding more water (2/3 cup each time!) before the potatoes were ready. After adding the cup of baby spinach, I decided I wanted more and threw in the whole bag. Despite all these changes, the recipe was really, really tasty. Thanks for sharing!
  2. I did enjoy this. It was easy to prepare and I think a healthy choice. I thought that it could use a little boost of flavor. Maybe some garlic and a little touch of curry paste?


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
