"I have made this recipe 3 times and I love it! My husband felt the steak needed a little flavor more. So the second time we rub it with minced garlic and blck pepper 1Tsp each, that was delish. Third time same way and its a winner."

"This was awesome! I used cherry tomatoes from my tomato plant. I would increase the amount of tomatoes to 2 cups. It was sooo incredibly good. Even my 2 year old liked it."
