This is such a wonderful recipe. I changed it up a little since I didn't have any beef broth on hand and because my family likes this gravy mix. Here is the Southeast we have a natural dry brown gravy mix made by C. F. Sauers (they also have a web site and offer a low sodium version as well). I replaced the beef broth with this. C.F.Sauers loved the modified recipe and posted it on their website. I used fresh tomatoes, peppers and onions from the garden, but I eliminated the celery since I didn't have any on hand. I served it with rice and a salad. This dish pleased even my pickiest eaters. It freezes well, which is important to us since we like to enjoy our garden's bounty during the winter months also. It also tastes great as lunch leftovers the following day. I will be making more of this before the end of our harvest and freezing it to enjoy during the cold winter months.
Fantastic recipe (even in the original form).
