This recipe was just not that great. As a professional chef, I rarely follow the recipes exactly but I did this time, with the exception of adding fresh garlic instead of garlic salt. First off, the meat really needs to be seared in olive oil if only for the eye appeal. Otherwise, it looks like a big purple glob of meat. Second, the gravy mix must be brought to a boil or it will not thicken. You can't just dump in the mix and stir. Finally, I have to believe the brand of gravy mix used makes a big difference since so many people like this dish. I used a brand called Simply Organic.. bad aftertaste. I would try this dish again making the sauce with the wine/pan juices, chicken stock and a little demi (you can buy jars of it at Sur La Table...adds a lot of depth to sauces.) Bottom line..this is easy to make and it tastes that way. It has potential though...
