    PanNan's Note:

    A great way to use inexpensive round steak. The mushroom gravy is delicious with mashed potatoes. The recipe is an old one from Jean Anderson's Grass Roots Cookbook. I've been making it since before my kids were born.

      Yummy! I've made this recipe several times. Great for mushroom lovers. I follow this recipe very closely. Use crimini mushrooms--love their flavor; use a bit more beef stock (about 1 1/2 C.) and some garlic powder or finely chopped garlic. Also add some sliced carrots once in awhile. (Depending on how thin you slice the carrots--don't put them in right away or they will overcook). It makes such a nice gravy for noodles or mashed potatoes. Thanks PanNan!

      Really simple and quite yummy. I didn't have beef stock so used beef bouillon instead and then decided it did not have enough flavour so added 2 tbsp onion soup mix to correct it. That helped. Next time I will experiment with adding different spices. This would be great finished up in the crock pot too. Served over creamy mashed potatoes - yum. Thx PanNan.

      YUM! I did this over frozen hamburger patties to have a homemade dinner and loved the sauce before it ever went on the meat. I'm with the others saying to use more seasoning, though. I used 2 boullion cubes with 1 1/2 cups water.
