Used different ingredients. Very nice!! Wasn't expecting much for such a simple recipe, but it was great!! Didn't use steak, just leftover beef chunks, and added some bacon bits which i fried beforehand. I had no papprika, so i used unground pepper. Also added a splash of Worcester sauce. - 28 Feb 2011


Altered ingredient amounts. My husband loved this recipe, I used fresh chillis where I think I should have used the dried as suggested as it was not hot enough and we also added some left over chirozo. - 24 Apr 2009
