"Excellent flavor I thickened the gravy with flour water mixture next time I will add more veggies and potatoes"

"My family really liked this one. I liked how easy it was and it was good, but I think next time I will add some more seasoning to it. I apparently didn't read the recipe right and cut the meat into chunks rather serving size pieces, but we served it over mashed potatoes so it was almost a stew and it worked out great."
