Added a couple of anchovies which boosted the flavour a bit. Nice enough but not memorable

I had to simmer the beef for another hour to allow it to absorb the flavour of the sauce.

Not bad, I had mine with pasta. It needed plenty of salt and pepper. I also added a little balsamic vinegar to the onions.

Personally found it far too much for one person, meat cooked lovely, sauce could have been a little thicker.

i made this a while ago & thought it was really nice. quite rich and i did have to simmer it for a while so the meat was tender.

This made a very nice meal but would say pick your wine carefully as it can be quite rich.

Ok, but the meat didn't seem to have enough time to soak up the flavours. The sauce itself was delicious.

A couple of questions:

In the US, the standard pour for a glass of wine is 5 fl.oz (150ml) or 1/5 of a bottle. Is it the same in the UK?

Should the can of tomatoes be drained, or is the juice added as well?

MTIA.

Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. A glass of wine in the UK varies from 125-175ml, so 150ml would work well. With regards to the tomatoes, we recommend adding the juice too.
