I really enjoyed this! Made using some slightly tough leftover roast beef. Used the juices from the roast for the gravy. I used less salt. Good use of leftovers!

This was good and easy to make. It's been snowing so I had to make some subs in this recipe because of what I had on hand. I used ground beef instead of beef and didn't add the celery. I used corn instead of carrots. I cut back on the salt to a half a teaspoon. We all enjoyed this but thought it was just a bit too much garlic powder. I think I would cut it in half next time. This had really good flavor just a bit too much garlic for our tastes.

I'd comment, but my keyboard broke when my head fell on it when I passed out from pure, nearly orgasmic joy. Made for Under Cover Photos.
