"I just made this for dinner. We do not care for olives in this house so I added quartered mushrooms and some chunks of carrot. I also used stewing steak pieces. It was delicious and I will be using the leftovers in a small pie tomorrow. Steak was tender and not chewy."

"Only change I made was adding a couple teaspoons of sugar to counter the acid of tomatoes. My family liked it lots."
