My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. Beef steaks are marinated in red wine, garlic and spices, then pan-fried twice to reduce the sauce.
Very nice but also very garlicy, could taste it for days after. - 16 Oct 2008
This is a traditional portuguese dish. My mom makes it all the time and she serves it 2 ways-1 as a sandwhich with fresh french rolls and butter(called a bifana) which is my favorite, and 2 served with home made fries and a fried egg(this is the way they serve it in restaurants in Portugal). We marinade it a little diff, we don't use water and instead of the chili and white pepper, we use 2 small red peppers. We marinade it over night also. This is my favorite!!! - 06 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was in Portugal this summer & had this dish. I have added some Balsamic vinegar to give it abit of an edge(Think they used that in Portugal, as it had a slightly sharp taste). Also they had sliced sauted potatoe around the dish. - 17 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
