This was just one of those impromptu meals that I made.

A little of this and that, stuff from the freezer, fridge, and pantry “but” the wine put it over the top!

If you are starting out with unseasoned ground sirloin be sure to add the necessary seasonings { oregano, basil, garlic, etc } all the usual suspects!

I like to add the liquid elements one at a time, reducing them as I go along. This really intensifies all the different flavors.
