    My husband and I agreed -- these just might be the best steaks we've ever eaten! Next time I will make the full amount of sauce (instead of halving it for the two of us) and serve it with couscous as suggested.

    I bought good steaks and they cooked perfectly. So most and tender. And the cherry sauce was a great accompaniment; I served the steaks with couscous, which the sauce was great with as well.
