I thought this was 'ok'. Admittedly I accidentally added too much corn flour in an attempt to reduce/thicken the sauce and it came out a bit sludgy. It tasted ok but not enough for me to make it again.

I added two tins of tomatoes but sauce was still on the watery side. Next time I will put in the oven as suggested by others. I added carrots and celery. It was nice and I will make this again as all the family enjoyed it.

This was great. I followed advice and added some pesto (I had some to use up) at the end which added to the flavour. Can easily add any vegetables to this as well. I served with bread to mop up all the juices as it was a little watery but tasted fab still. I made the full amount for just us 2, it wasnt loads but a decent amount.

This was very tasty but I cooked for longer to let the sauce reduce and just added a splash of water. After reading all other comments I would add paprika and a stock cube next time and chuck in any other veg I have. I served with new potatoes and asparagus. Yum!

I added a few mushrooms and half a glass of red wine and served with garlic bread. A lovely lighter version of rich heavy winter stew - perfect for summer.

Quick and simple, being a lover of spice we added a little kick to steak in the form of some Cayenne pepper. Probably need to add a little cornfloyr to the mix as previous have said, we didn't and the sauce is a little on the runny side.
