    I made this for dinner using ground venison. I liked it very much. I think my wife would have preferred it with ground beef, so next time I will try that. The gravy is tasty. Thank you.

    Great recipe. I did use ground chuck, and usually when I make a recipe that says 1 cup, or 1 soup cup of water, I gradually add the water as it is cooking, and then stir. I was satisfied with 3/4 cup of water, only adjustment. The sauce was great, and I decided to take a little of the gravy, and mix it with a tablespoon of butter that I served with some rolls for us. Thanks for posting this. Made for PRMR tag.

    I made this recipe on 11/12/13 for mine and my SO's dinner, and most importantly for pammyowl's Cook-A-Thon . If your looking for a fancy dish that uses a lot of hard to pronounce ingredients,stay away from this recipe.But if you're searching for a " Comfort Food " type dish,then your search is over. :) There were a couple of changes made,but I don't think the integrity of the recipe was compromised at all. Instead of using the instant onion, about 1/4 cup of chopped sweet onion was used. Since I prefer Golden Mushroom soup, it was used instead of the soup called for. I thought the gravy was dark enough, the Kitchen Bouquet wasn't used. And mashed potatoes, were used instead of diced. Both my SO and I enjoyed the simplicity of this warm and comforting dish.

    Truely a "no-brainer" here... I knew I would love this recipe from the start! The gravy is almost identical to how I make my German Rouladen gravy. Hubby and I loved it! So simple to make and quick. I served it with greens on the side (sorry about my poor picture). I really enjoyed the parsley potatoes that go with it (but I must confess, I made and used your Recipe #504455 for ZWT9). Normally, I will serve mashed with our gravy meals, but not anymore. It is really yummy (and extremely cheap to make)! Thank you for posting your recipe(s). (Made for "New Kids" tag)
