Another 5 star "star recipe". I did use a vegetable cube due to a vegetarian daughter, and threw in a few more mushrooms-we had this for the gravy portion of "fries and Gravy" for Canada Day. This would be excellent for a baked or twice baked potato topping.

Very tasty and easy to make. I added thyme and served this over meatloaf and mashed potatoes....yum!!

I referred to this recipe to serve with the meatloaf 33921. While I barely followed this recipe I felt it required a review. I had a tiny bit of some onion. garlic and celery and concentrated chick stock left in the pan from the meatloaf in which I fried the mushroom, then added red wine. more chicken stock, salt and pepper and instead of the cornflour I used arrowroot as directed.
