This recipe has all the ingredients for success but lacks something.
It needs something to add color and taste.
Very tasty even though I didn't make the gravy out of the liquid. Very easy to make and delicious. I used my mandoline slicer to make matchsticks sized potato pieces and added shredded carrots. I'd give it five stars if it had some color to it. Maybe I'll add some corn or red and orange bell pepper to it next time.
