Such great flavor. Loved it on whole grain noodles. I simmered it for about 40 minutes. Meat was still tough after only 20 minutes. Excellent. Family loved it.

I served this along with rice but I think noodles would be good too. You can't go wrong with using beef consomme and the gravy was very good. I might use 1 or 2 more tablespoons of flour just to make it a little thicker. Thank you for posting .
