Wish I could give 4 1/2 stars. Very simple to prepare with a good combo of flavors....just not over the top. Just enough "zip" to make it interesting. Only thing I added was a little more garlic (because there is no such thing as too much garlic) and a splash of kitchen bouquet to enhance the gravy. Otherwise I follwed to the tee and served over creamy grits. Husband and son were pleased!

Absolutely delicious and easy to make. Used garbanzo flour to make it lower in carbs and served over mashed sweet potatoes. DH was practically licking his bowl. Thanks for another super recipe.
