    The recipe doesn't really make it clear that the beef is deep fried so wasted a lot of time and money on the first atempt! By doing this I also realised only half the amount of beef was needed than stated, so trying again I halved the amount of beef. The recipe didn't tell me when to add the worcester sauce and the picture given is not of this recipe! In the end it did taste nice though, although very rich.  -  16 Aug 2010
