"Huge hit last night! I doubled the gravy, since we love sauce. I'll definitely be trying the gravy on other meats (such as pork chops)."

"This is a huge favorite in my home. (I, too, double the gravy.) I have also used this for pork, lamb and beef; it's so simple and OH so delicious! This is a quick and easy "company" dish too! I wish I could add a sixth star."

"I found this in the Comfort Food Diet cookbook... very easy and tasty. I would cut back on the salt in the sauce, it was a little salty for us. But overall concept and taste was very yummy and easy!! Thanks again!"

"This is really a great recipe! The gravy is almost drinkable, it's so good! LOL! I've made this numerous times. I always double the gravy, and there is never any left over. I recommend this recipe all the time."
