This is a comfort dish. Can be made ahead & place in the frig. I make this, if I require any minor surgery as this dish is easy on the stomach. This is low salt as my diet requires. It is best when Beef broth is replaced with a can of consume beef broth undiluted. To much salt for me.

The combination just didn't work for our tastes. I enjoy all the ingredients but the recipe came out as what I would term 3 stars for our personal taste.

My wife and I enjoyed the recipe and I found I was able to cook 'on the fly' so to speak; cooking and reading the recipe as I went. I'm not very adept at cooking so I would say that makes this very simple. Two items... first, I couldn't figure out where the ketchup, dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce were supposed to go and when. Second, I ended up adding more than double the cornstarch than was called for and it still didn't seem that thick. I was hungry, so I added corn from the can and some frozen peas, finishing off w/ just a little sherry for taste. Finally, my wife and I will add something (cheese, chives, who knows?) to the potatoes to spruce them up a bit. That said, thanks Kitty for your recipe; it was raining and cold and that just popped into my head and sounded good so I looked for your recipe... True to your word it was easy and easy on the stomach. We will be making this again and I will check back in. Best, EMS Shane
