My husband and 11 year old son said YUMMY. This is offically my husbands favorite meal now. My "picky" son had 3 servings. I followed recipe but used stew meat and added the dry mustard as suggested by other reviews. It was delicious. Thanks Sarah.
After researching lots of other recipes, I chose this one. What a hit!!! Not too heavy.....just right. However, I must admit that I added a pinch of dried mustard. Other than that, did not change a thing. Again, thanks!
Made exactly as stated, except added 1/2 tsp Soy Sauce in error. So added 1/2 tsp Worcestershire too. Came out great. Used sirloin tips which were more tender. DH LOVED! So did I. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
