This dish - basically beef in a savory gravy, served over egg noodles - is my favourite dish from childhood. I now make it for my husband, and he loves it too!

This was good but we found a recipe with a heartier bolder thicker sauce.

This tasted very good, but I thought the sauce was too thin. Next time I'll probably try using only 1 to 1 1/2 C water. The flavor was definitely good, though, so it's worth some "tinkering". I did add some garlic, but then I add garlic to almost everything! Thanks for posting!
