I chose to prepare this dish for my Dad's birthday in November 2007. It was chilly outside and everyone gave the recipe a 'thumbs up.' I'm not the most daring cook in the kitchen, but my Dad's culinary advice (he's an ex-chef) helped me to spruce-up the recipe and I will continue to incorporate the changes in the future. I added frozen green peas and lots of mushrooms to the dish...carrots would work just as well, too. I also used beef stew meat, but next time I will not chose a cut that takes so long to tenderize...as I had to simmer the meat for quite a bit longer than what was called for. Due to the longer simmering time, my Mom was worried the gravy/sauce mixture would cook down too much, so she started adding water- BEHIND MY BACK- to keep it from evaoporating. This is not recommended because everyone would have preferred a thicker sauce. Mom apologized and we've all forgiven her ;-)
