A favorite with our family for years. I serve this with rice. Use milk to thin the gravy if necessary. Hope you enjoy!

Good flavor, but the gravy was really thick and my kids wouldn't touch the dish because of it. Next time I make it, I will add more milk and less flour. My husband and I really enjoyed it.

We really liked this alot! I thought the thick gravy was really good, but it would be simple to thin if you felt the need... I will definately make this again my son and my hubby and myself all enjoyed it very much! Thanks for the delicious recipe Bev!

The super thick sauce/gravy seems to make the meat extra tender and flavorful. I don't eat all the gravy that it makes but this is absolutely delicious!
