This is a GREAT recipe although I usually modify it as I'm learning to cook with with cheaper cuts of meat (patio steaks, etc.). Some of the other modifications I normally use are (1)use only green peppers in it, (2)cook it for at least 2 hours or so in the final cooking, (3)use only 1.5 lbs of meat for six serving, (4)use three cans of diced/crushed/stewed tomatoes, again to help tenderize the meat, and (5)play around with the spices...basil, garlic, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, etc.This is a VERY easy recipe...uses things on hand...tastes great...and can be done VERY cost-efficiently. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
