    This is a very simple and easy to follow recipe. It tastes exactly like my grandma used to make which is a major compliment! You could easily alter this recipe for a beef gravy or add additional herbs and spices but in all honesty it is delicious just the way it is. I have written this recipe down for my permanent recipe box rather than bookmarking it in my favorites! I definitely don’t want to lose this one!
