I'm sorry but my family did not like this. I followed the recipe exactly as written and our meat had no flavor to it at all. I did add a lot of salt and pepper but I think it needed that and more while it was cooking. It smelled so good when it was cooking and I thought they gravy would draw through the meat but it didn't.
