This was pretty good.
I served this with Foolproof Brown rice ( and peas, and the gravy that I made by reducing down the juice (for 1/2 hour) with the addition of a little flour.
I made some substitutions; I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes so I added a tsp of sugar; instead of the salt free seasoning, I added 1 tsp of salt and a squirt of lemon juice, and I used red wine instead of white bc that was what was already open. I also raised the heat to HIGH for the last hour.
Serve with steamed green beans and a green salad with light vinaigrette.
