How it went:
Although it turned out thinner and more like soup than stew, the taste was delicious. The recipe called for a packaged spice blend, but we decided to make our own blend by using steak spice and oregano leaves, not too difficult, but it still gave us a choice about what spices were in it. The recipe also called for the steak cubes to be coated in flour before cooking in order to help the broth thicken into gravy. The steak was cooked without flour, but the taste was still good.
What I would do differently:
If I used this recipe again I definitely would try to make it thicker and into more of an actual stew. I would also put more vegetables in just to make it go a bit further. I would also try putting less coals around the dutch oven and let it simmer for longer to see if it made a difference in how thick the gravy was.
All in all a delicious recipe, and no true "mistakes"
