  1. 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.

    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!
