Loved this recipe, the sauce is YUM. I had a lot of sauce left over so froze it and used it on BBQ steaks and lamb shanks. My husband commented that it tastes like a jue!

I followed the direction but added mushrooms and bacon.. I also used butchers BBQ rissoles. I have to say that this is my first venture into cooking with wine as none of the family drink the stuff. The result was absolutely stunning. Everyone loved it and I used the left over sauce on our steaks for tonight’s tea. It is so versatile. Thank you so much for the recipe. Well done.
