“This dish was the result of a standard recipe gone awry. It began as a variation of my Shepher'd Pie, but ended up something else entirely. What happened? I used too much water in making the brown gravy mix. Since package mixes can vary in the amount of water needed to make the gravy, I suggest doubling whatever water amount called for. That's what I did, accidently. The dish is still good, and goes well with bread slices and/or large biscuits to sop up the extra liquid. I'd like the thank Mean Chef for the name 'sostewserrole.'”
