Perfect as written but the second and third time I made it I added fresh garlic and 8 ounces of fresh sliced mushrooms with onions, added chopped fresh parsley in meat mixture, added more seasoning such as oregano just for more flavor. Tripled the recipe for meat mixture as I always do for my big eatin family. Quadrupled the gravy and probably added more sherry (the real stuff) as it MAKES THE DISH! Do NOT skip the SHERRY, it's a MUST. Also, I never use flour to thicken gravy, I used cornstarch in place of flour (1 TBS.Cornstarch to 2 TBS.Flour Better flavor and no lumps. Even though I quadrupled the gravy, I only used approx. 4 TBS. Of cornstarch sprinkled over onion/mushroom/garlic mixture. Served with mashed potatoes (A MUST) and fresh spinach. My family from ages 9 to 55 LOVE this recipe. THANK YOU SO MUCH for such a simple, comforting, recipe. Last time I made this dish, I added a can of Golden Mushroom soup to replace some of the beef broth (as I hate to do!!!) but I have to admit it tasted really good as well. Everything else the same. ENJOY~!
