    Lori Mama's Note:

    I learned how to make this dish in Home Ec. while attending German school. It's one of my kids favorite dinners. Note: This recipe ends up with a lot of gravy. I usually like that, because I can freeze some for other sauce-less beef or just over mashed potatoes/rice/noodles on a meatless night.

      I made the whole recipe with specific intentions for a second meal. I served this Friday night over noodles. The beef was fork tender and the gravy was excellent. Yesterday I boiled some cubes of potato, mixed them with beef and a can of peas and carrots; put them in a pie crust, baked, and sliced served with more gravy on top. This is the kind of food I grew up on! YUM! Thanks for posting Lori. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

      Loved it! Wonderful flavor - this is comfort food indeed! I loved the fresh nutmeg with the beef. The only problem I had was that the gravy wasn't thick enough, but I think that was my fault for using a whole large onion which must have added more liquid. I served it over brown rice in bowls and that worked perfectly. Since I'm an onion lover, next time I will increase the flour to equal the butter. This is a definite keeper, thanks Lori!

      Fabulous quick and easy dinner meal for our family! I used a vidalia onion and beef granulars in place of the cube (what I had on hand tonight). This turned out perfectly! I served it over brown rice and had my recipe for broccoli casserole as a side dish. Absolutely wonderful !! Thanks Lori for sharing! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game. :)
