    Delicious! I loved this super easy recipe. I served it with mashed potatoes, stove-top dressing and green beans.

    My BF and I both love this. Great taste and so easy, Others have said BLah, make sure you use Lipton onion soup (not off brand) and I used a good brand of beer (again not off brand).He is a OTR and I will freeze a lot of the leftovers for him to take with. Does anyone know if this will freeze well??
