I tried this because of the rave reviews, and was very dissapointed. The sauce was very watery, as well as bland. I will not make this again.

This recipe is a family favorite. Only sub i made was red wine for sherry and i added the cornstarch seperately with a teaspoon of the broth, to get it to thicken a bit better. Love it!
