Tried this last year and i'm still cooking it with the original ingredients, what makes it better than just good is the quality of your produce, it really needs good quality beef browned before putting into the dish and ripe good tasting large vine tomatoes for that garlicky tomato sauce.... a delicious supper.
Don't forget to deglaze the meat pan for maximum flavour!

This is an excellent midweek meal. I read everyone's comment and added extra garlic and really seasoned it well.
It was perfect, I was surprised by how tender the meat was, loved it a lot.

Both my husband enjoyed this dish but both said there was something missing - will be making it again but I think I'll be adding a few other ingredients to it. The dish itself is very simple to make and went really well with cauliflower instead of cabbage. For some reason it won't let me rate it - I'd give this one a 4.

I found the steak a bit dry even though I added plenty of OXO. Nevertheless it tasted lovely and was easy to make.

Made this the other night and will not be doing it again. It was lacking in taste and we could not finish it.

make this quite a lot, very easy and very tasty. i shall, next time, spread a thin layer of english mustard over the steaks and maybe leave out the garlic, for a little something extra!

made this last night - was lovely. i think i'd use 2 onions next time, but other than that it was great!

I ran out of tomatoes when i made this dish once, so substituted some sun dried tomatoes i had, result was an even better one!! Have made it the same way since as even the kids liked it then!!

This is a lovely meal. The meat is tender and full of flavour. I add a little beef stock to make a garlicky gravy. Delicious.

This is a great dish, I add extra salt and pepper, tabasco sauce and worcester sauce. lovely, have made this a number of times now

I've cooked this a few times and it's always fab. Who would have thought that so few ingredients and very little preparation would taste so great!

This one works for me - but just needs a bit more garlic and tomato for me. It's so easy.

I didn't have a dish deep enough to stack the layers so had to make in two individual dishes.
The meal turned out ok but could have done with something extra, perhaps more seasoning

Not the best meal we have cooked from this website.

Easy to make, and basically cooks itself; results in great tender meat and a really satisfying supper

This is a simple dish to prepare and lovely to eat. I have made this a number of times and will make again.

This is really easy to prepare and can be pretty much left alone once it is in the oven. Steak was really tender but next time I would use more seasoning. Would definately make this again!

Great mid-week supper - for someone who normally prefers a rare steak, this one was surprisingly tender and full of fresh flavour from the garlic and tomatoes. This one's a keeper!

This took my husband and I 35 minutes to prepare the ingredients, using a food processor. Not the 10 minutes quick mid-week recipe we were hoping for.
Added herb mustard to the steaks and a little beef stock with Tabasco & Worcestershire sauce and plenty of seasoning.
Delicious, but not a quick after work supper.
