Reviews forFamily Flank Steak
"Excellent and not that hard to make, even for a novice in the kitchen. Very much like the French dish, "Boeuf Bourguignon" without all the time spent waiting for it to cook in the oven--and I've made that one a number of times too! I did double the corn starch and water amounts to make the sauce a tad thicker; other than that, it was a go as written."
