I've been making this for several years now - at least once or twice a month. It has become a true family favorite. Initially, I made it as given but over time have adapted it to suit our tastes. I leave out most of the seasonings for the meat - making mini meatloaves with bread crumb, eggs, salt and pepper. I believe if you use good meat (beef, pork, turkey or any combo), the flavor will shine through. And I really punch up the flavors in the gravy. Like most, I always make more gravy. Life is better with good gravy. :) After removing the meat, I brown some chopped onion and garlic in the grease, then add the flour. I allow the flour to brown just a bit before adding the broth (low sodium or homemade). I also omit the sherry and add a bit of red wine instead. I add a couple drops of Worcestershire sauce, a tablespoon or so of tomato paste and beef base. I taste for seasonings and add salt and pepper as necessary. Finally I finish it off with some cream and some fresh parsley. We like to serve this over rice. A very easy weeknight meal. Again - a family favorite.
