For ZWT6. From Note: Aug. 17th, 2011 -- We loved this dish. With the 2- 2 1/2 hours of cooking the meat is very tender and the gravy this makes is so delicious, used a slice of bread to soak up the extra gravy on plate.

Ingredients Nutrition

Loved this recipe! It's super easy to get on the stove & then just cooks itself! The meat was perfectly tender and the flavor reminded us of our favorite Salisbury steak recipe, without all the work! ;) Made just as directed & served it with Scottish Kilkenney (A Different Version of Mashed Potatoes). Delicious! Thanks for posting, ML6! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :)

|I have to tell you that I am not a fan of stew, that said, I loved this dish, it was awesome. Quick and easy to make with terrific results. The meat was tender and fall apart good, the sauce was to die for, it had so much flavor. I served this with Devonshire Stew, a mixture of potatoes, cabbage and onion. It was so good together. We cleaned our plates in record time. Of course dh has asked that I make this again and I have happily agreed. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe MomLuvs6.

I can't figure out why mine came out so much lighter than Tink's when I used all ask for ingerdients, lol. Be that as it may, my DH especially loved this. The meat was melt in your mouth tender and the taste was a nice change from the usual. After you have it in the pot there is nothing to do but checking occasionally and adding a little water if need be. It may take 3 hrs but that isn't intensive labor or watching. Made fro ZWT 8.
