Very easy to make and simmered until it melts in your mouth. The gravy is delicious and goes well with potatoes, noodles or rice. This could also be eaten on a toasted bun, topped with the onions and some of the thickened sauce.

Outstanding recipe!! I doubled the gravy using beef broth, browning sauce and 2 beef cubes. I served it with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. We loved the way the meat tasted. I'm putting this keeper in my tried and true file and I know I'll be making it often. Thanks so much for sharing.

I haven't eaten this kind of a 1950's meal in quite a while and I throughly enjoyed it! Very easy to prepare. The only thing different that I did was that I didn't remove the onions when adding the flour, just left them in and stirred a bit to cook the flour before adding the water. Thanks for sharing!
