Serving Ideas:
  • A tossed salad on the side or even some of the Lion Rolls.


  • I used the mini pierogies for the recipe.
  • The recipe called for beef broth but I think the beef stock gives it more flavor.
  • * If you do use the lower fat beef, there will not be much in the way of drippings. I just used what was left and added in about 2 tbsp of butter.
