I liked the ease of this recipe. :) Good flavor too!:) I did make a substitution though, but only because I wanted to use some leftover beef and broth I had from the night before. I left out the brown sugar,& heavy cream and included the beef/broth mixture. Yummm!! Thanks Tootsie for a great recipe!!:)
