    Great recipe, wonderful flavours which complemented the quality of the New York steaks. One tweak, I halved the amount of beans and added diced potato instead. My family loved it.  -  19 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    It was all good-a great mix of meat and vegetables.. i just cooked the steaks in the frypan (heavy bottomed, cast iron) and they were fine. Served with mashed potatoes...I feel a new favourite coming on.  -  15 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
