Reviews for Steak San Marino
"We really enjoyed this. Half way through cooking. I put a clean dish towel under the lid so the sauce can thicken. I also added Itailian dice tomatoes."
"Very tasty. Meat was so tender and flavorful. Will use this recipe again for sure."
"I looked this but it being an Italian style dish I would put in some thinly sliced onion and maybe a bullion cube with the tomato sauce. In order to have enough sauce I doubled it but I also used nearly 2 lbs of meat which I cut in strips about 1/2 inch thick. I cooked on high for 2 hours then lowered it to low for the last 3. Another addition might be pearl onions.My husband said it was a keeper but I seldom leave a recipe as listed. I usually try it once and add to it to suit our taste so this is no exception."
"This was a delicious change of pace from the usual "pot roast". I did add a can of diced tomatoes (italian style) and this added to the gravy. I also added more carrots because we really like them. Wonderful recipe and definitely a keeper!"
