The blend of worcestershire, dry mustard, and brown sugar create a delicious sauce that is perfect over egg noodles. Left over sauce and noodles make a yummy lunch, even without the meat! Thanks to my wonderful Mom for this recipe--a true childhood favorite!

Just a delicious and comforting meal! We served it with brown rice. I followed your recipe to the "T". It is a very simple dish to throw together. I browned the meat in my heavy iron casserole dish so this was a one pot meal for me. ;-) TGirl you are so right the sauce is excellent and the meat just melt in the mouth. This recipe brought back childhood memories for me as my mother use to cook a similar dish so I was really happy to find yours. Thank you so very much for this delicious main course. YUM!

I thought this was absolutely wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly except that I added 2 T. flour to the water before mixing it with the other sauce ingredients. I also baked it at 375F for 1 1/2 hours rather than cooking it on the stove. I tried it the other night, cooked it on the stove and left it alone too long and burned it to a crisp. I did salvage enough to know that I wanted to try it again, which I did tonight.

We thought this dish was really tasty. The only change I made was to add a package of brown gravyand a couple of boullion cubes, but I don't think you could taste it. It was good anyways, and we will make it again. Thanks
