Personal Notes:
I've been making this wonderful recipe for 30-plus years (found it in a Women's Day cookbook series). I increase the meat to 1-1/2 lbs, add a large onion, lots of fresh garlic, and I use cup of good red wine. I use tons of fresh mushrooms cut into big chunks. Basically, add extra ingredients on everything. A very nice touch is some balsamic vinegar. De-lish !
