About this recipe: My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. Beef steaks are marinated in red wine, garlic and spices, and 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)
