    I hope you all enjoyed them!! I also hope I deciphered my Nanny's receipe correctly. Everytime I make them, I add a little more seasoning than what she had on there. So I would taste the sauce as you go along. Good luck!! :)

    I made this tonight and it was so tasty! I had to use a little more flour and 3 beef bouillons. I agree with the taste as you go, other than that it was a huge hit! Thanks!
