What a terrific dish ratherbeswimmin'. We really enjoyed this simple dish, not a lot of ingredients, but certainly a lot of flavor. Easy to make. We really enjoyed the thyme in this dish. The meat was tender and moist and the potatoes were perfectly cooked. I did add some beef flavoring to the creamy rich gravy. Thanks for sharing :)
