I'm a steelworker. I took some of this meal to work the next day for lunch. Reheated it in the microwave while telling the guys about what a fantastic receipe i had found. Was so proud to out cook my wife. Left the plate on the indoor style picknic table and went to get a coke. You guessed it,,,,,when I got back there were 4 guys with little plastic forks in their hand and a TUNA SANDWICH they had to buy from the machine for me, to replace my lunch. Soooooo,,,,guess 5 steelworkers vote for this one.

Absolutely FABULOUS!!!! I used a mixture of herbs, since I didn't have the Herbs de Provence--I put a pinch of thyme, rosemary, summer savory, marjoram, sage, and basil-followed the rest of the recipe as directed-I did mess it up by adding too much salt, but Di came to my rescue and had me add some extra potatoes; it worked like a charm, absorbing the excess salt, so the final dish was perfectly seasoned! The sauce was served over white rice and it was delicious-thank you, Diana, for this wonderful recipe, and for helping me out with the "oops, I over-salted!" crisis!! Will be making this many, many times !!!! TERESA

I make a variation of this with mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water instead of just the beef broth. It has a great taste.
