"This was very good. I might add a touch of salt or a bit more Worcestershire next time. I did thicken the juices to use as a gravy by adding 2 tablespoons of corn starch and heating over medium heat until thickened. If you do not like pepper (my family does) you might want to decrease the amount before cooking and let people add it as they desire. My family loved it the way it was."
