This was a very easy recipe and also a home run at our house. My family was practically licking the gravy off of their plates. We served this with mashed potatoes and it was amazing. I was hoping for leftovers for some awesome sandwiches, but no such luck. I used a homemade cream soup substitute for the can of soup hoping that it would cut down on the salt, but it still was a tad too salty for my taste. This one is a keeper!
OK, but the gravy is very salty and also, the flavor of the vinegar is very overpowering. The gravy cooks in about 10 minutes, not 30.
I made this for company, and I was unsure at first but it turned out great! I changed it up a bit, by putting more beef broth in it and we had the gravy over our mashed potatoes.
this is sooo good! and the left-overs are just as good!! I mixed in some bbq sauce one night and served it on buns, taco sauce and salsa the next and served on tortillas.
