*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #70* Prepared following the directions, but used a package of stew beef and sour cream. Due to not using tender beef, I let it simmer a few extra minutes, and served it over mashed potatoes. Lovely comfort food on a cold windy night ! Thanks for posting, Chickee -- will be fixing this for company !!

This made a wonderful dinner last night. A beautiful brown sauce with an elegant taste. Made for Aus?NZ Swap.
