  1. This worked out great for me. Thank you.

  2. The husband and crew loved it. We will be making this weekly. Thank you

  3. How can I get my sauce to thicken up a lil more I followed ur recipe to the letter on the salisbury steak fantastic but I couldn't get my sauce to thicken like urs do u know y

    1. corn starch should help.

    2. Try by adding a little more corn starch, but I found it easier to mix starch with a small amount of water in a measuring cup & added to mix when boiling, instead of dumping it right in, that way you can add as you go till the thickness your wanting. And it was AWESOMEπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
