I remember my mom making this, even in her later years when she couldn't be on her feet a lot. She would put her electric skillet on a small table and make this. Many times we had it with mushrooms she and my dad had picked in their woods. I now cook fresh mushrooms and add it to the gravy.

This woman could take a piece of round steak and make it so tender, you had no idea you weren't eating a finer piece of beef!
