“This is another method to cook a cheap piece of meat. The gravy is thin so you might need to thicken it a bit with some cornstarch at the end of cooking. In the winter time I cook this in the oven, it helps keep the house warm and in the summer I throw it in the crock pot. Make some mashed potatoes or rice and add a veggie and I have supper.”
