      This was so tastey! Added a little extra beer and after simmering added about 1/3 cup of water to stretch the sauce. Served over egg noodles. It was time i might add an extra onion as mine cooked away to almost nothing.

      This was very good, but for some reason the flour mix came off of some of the meat and just stuck to the pan, even tho I followed the recipe exactly. I also didn't use the beer and sub'ed veggie stock instead of beef to be healthier!

      Great! I left out the beer and I believe that, plus all the onions, made the gravy a bit on the sweet side. Nonetheless, I wouldn't hesitate to make this recipe again.
