SOOO easy. A fix-and-forget oven entree. A very old recipe. If you throw a few baking potatoes in the oven toward the last hour of cooking time, you'll just need to add a salad or quick veggie for a complete meal. The consomme works better than broth in this instance, makes a very smooth rich-tasting sauce. Recipe circa 1955!

This is, quite simply, fantastic. Really good, ridiculously easy, and your house smells wonderful all afternoon while it cooks. And it uses a cheap cut of meat. What more could you ask for? If you haven't tried this one, do yourself a favor an fix it soon.
