This was always one of our favorites growing up. It is now one of my own family's favorites, too!

Although I have not tried this specific recipe..this is a recipe that my mom use to make. It is a comfort food that we use to eat all of the time in the winter! The only thing i would recomend is that when you brown the meat let the pan drippings burn a little. It makes the gravy a nice brown color and adds good flavour.
