A Man's Dish! He will think you are Queen of the Kitchen if you cook this for him! Great with mashed potatoes or rice. This is a weekly mainstay in our home.

I made this recipe as written but I found it needed more flavour. After checking the reviews, I decided to go with a few of the adjustments that MarthaStewartWanabe included in her review. I added some beef bouillon, a small clove of garlic and some portabello mushrooms. I have never heard of the Pillsbury flour before, so I seasoned my flour with season salt and garlic powder and used about 1 Tbsp of this flour mixture to thicken the gravy. I would probably make this again with these adjustments. Thx SeasonedCook.

This dish is comfort food through and through. The description is correct--"A Man's Dish"--as DH thoroughly enjoyed! The only adjustments I made were substituting beef broth for the water, adding 1 cup quartered mushrooms and adding 2 cloves minced garlic. Thank you for a delicious and satisfying dinner!

The gravy this makes is just wonderful! I used some 'Bistro' roast meat gravy mix in place of the flour as I can't get the flour listed. I too added a dash of cream like Marsha D. This one is a keeper :) Made for Aus/NZ swap #28, June 2009.
