This is the recipe that we made at home when I was growing up. My Dad loved it so much that we would make a double recipe and freeze half for another meal...we always ate this with pickled sweet and sour red cabbage and home made potato dumplings. We also added extra gingersnaps to the gravy cuz we like it on the sweeter side...keep tasting to your preference! The recipe is from an old cookbook called something like "how to please your husband." Don't hold that against the recipe though - it is sure to please everyone!
