      Wow! These are so good!! It's the first recipe I've tried from this site, and if the others are like this, I have found a winner site! My kids and my husband loved it! We had it over rice with some green baens and a salad. Thanks!

      This is soooogood....every bit as good as Sarah says it is. I served it with brown rice, for we like the chewy texture of it. It will most definitely become an often used recipe of mine.

      I've been using this recipe for a few months now to make "hamburger steaks" of sorts. (I use a 1/4 pound patty maker to shape them.) My husband I really like it; and the gravy is awesome. Thank you!
