Top Review by Montana Heart Song

This was comfort food, yumm! I used beef stew meat, cut in small pieces. I used browned flour which I have on hand. This added richness to the gravy. I did spray the deep frying pan with Pam. I tried without and meat stuck. I added a few drops of steak sauce to the gravy.<br/>The submitted recipe is basic and that is what I like about it, it stands alone..delicious..but if you want to ramp it up you can with many additions to either the potatoes or gravy.
