This was pretty good. My husband is a picky eater and he actually ate it! I pondered not making the sauce at the end, but did and I definitely made the right decision - the sauce pulled it all together! I used light cream instead of milk and that worked well. I also used beef broth instead of beef bouillon and cranberry/apple juice instead of apple concentrate. Raisins were yummy :).
