    Ilysse's Note:

    Not sure where this comes from. May be from a book, may be my own, who knows anymore. I do know that we love it. Please try to use fresh oregano, I have had good results with dried but nothing beats the fresh, small leaves. It really does make a big difference. Be sure to serve with some good bread to sop up the gravy. You can use your favorite tomato sauce recipe if you wish, or, dare I say, your favorite jar. As always, the time to make it is just a guess.

      We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! The gravy was both quick and tasty. My Italian grandfather would be proud. We made two amendments. 1) We used petite sirloins, rather than T-Bones, as we tend to save the t-bones for the grill and special occasions. 2) We used red wine, instead of white, because it was open. I don't think the recipe suffered for it. The recipe comes together quickly, and is sutiable for a busy weeknight. Thanks for posting!
