This recipe was perfect for a work night. Started it in the morning around 6:30. I was worried about the meat being dissolved, cooking so long. So I started with frozen meat. It worked. I tasted it when I got home & added the Herbs de Provence & celery salt with the mushrooms. Just right! Thanks so much for the inspiration Debbie!

This is an incredibly easy dinner to prepare. The different soups make this dish extra creamy and perfect to serve over rice or pasta. It's really full of flavor. The meat cooks to perfection and is very tender. Big chunks of mushrooms and onions are so good in the flavorful sauce. The gravy is very thick, so make sure to stir every so often to keep the sides from burning. Stirring also breaks up the frozen meat a bit.
