We like this with mashed potatoes, pasta or rice and vegetables. I usually do not thicken the sauce, but that is a personal preference. I have made this with different types of beer, light, strong and sweet depending what was on hand. It freezes well.
I don't know who the heck Dorothy is, but this is pretty good stuff. My husband tore this out of the paper,years back,when I was hospitalized,and begged me to make it when I was feeling better- so I did.Thanks, Dorothy, whoever you are!
