"I made a German dish years ago. The only thing I really thought was outstanding was the gravy. I had to change a few ingredients to make it work. I think most of the flavor was coming from the meat mixture and the long cooking time. This is the end result. Please try it, you won't be disappointed. It has a nice strong, smooth flavor."

Made this gravy to accompany meatloaf and it was a perfect match. Not to mention a great match with mashed potatoes. I must admit I completely forgot to add ketchup and noticed it when the meal had ended. It was good without it. Thank you Teresa for sharing!
