followed another reviewers advice and floured pieces before browning. Also added 2 bullion cubes to water. Made deep rich gravy on it's own. Great easy recipe that pleased dad and hubby. Thanks!!

Good recipe. Picky boyfriend even liked it. The only thing is that it is a little bland. Needs something more I just don't know what yet. I also added 2 diced potatoes after I put the water in. I defintely will make this again!
