I like this recipe because I can control the amount of sodium in it. The packaged mixes on the market contain enormous amounts of salt. I use low sodium beef bouillon. This makes a single recipe, but you can use the calculator to make a larger recipe and have it stored in your cupboard ready to use. This is nice made in the pan after you've browned meat.

I used instant coffee, and you can't even taste I in there. I made a double batch, using slightly less water, dumped everything in pan and whisked together. Le it cook for a couple minutes, and added 2 lbs. sliced mushroom caps to make mushroom gravy, it was so good. I substituted chopped garlic, and minced onion because I was out of the powdered varieties, but it was still delicious. I won't ever buy packets again!
