    Used different ingredients. Everytime we have (any) steak, my husband requests nothing other than onions & mushrooms and since he LOVES red peppers, I decided to give this a try. I made it per recipe, but threw in 4 semi-chopped, portabella mushrooms. Not only did it smell great while cooking, but tasted great as well! I didn't add sultanas. Thanks Crow, for the tasty steak topper!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Absolutely lovely! my husband loved it with some fresh foccacia bread. So easy and yummy. I used only oil, though, no butter and added some thyme as had no basil. I also added some balsamic vinegar instead of wine. Definetely one to make again and again. Thanks so much!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Something else. Cooked only about 15 min after adding wine so peppers still had some body...would be too mushy if cooked for 30 min. Wonderful flavour.  -  15 Sep 2008
