This smelled fabulous while cooking! I made only one change to the recipe which was to use OXO as our stores don't carry Better Than Bouillon. After thickening the gravy, I did decide to add a bit of onion soup mix to "up" the flavour (probably because I didn't use the bouillon you suggested). The simmering steak that I used was on the tough side so that was a downer, but not the fault of the recipe. I will make this again! Made for Spring PAC 2014, thanks for the recipe!
