  • You could change the order of the steps so the meat cooks in the beef broth longer. It adds a little time to the process but the meat will be more tender.
  • If you don’t like sherry you could use 1/4 cup of red wine this will make the dish slightly spicy.
  • Add just a dash of Worchestershire sauce just before you take it off the heat.
