This is a wonderful recipe and can be varied and still taste great. I used very lean ground beef, low salt beef broth, whole wheat flour, non-fat sour cream and substituted a small amount of olive oil instead of butter. It was wonderful! I also think this will freeze well.

This was good. We used top round and fresh mushrooms. We omitted the ketchup, doubled the amount of garlic, and we added 4 oz. of fat-free cream cheese that we had leftover from another recipe. We also added about 1/2 cup of celery to use up what we had.
