This was a great recipe. I used fresh carrots, mushrooms and celery instead of frozen peas and carrots. I also used 4 tablespoons of Worstershire sauce instead of A-1 and about 1/4 cup extra broth (basically the whole can). I let it simmer for about 20 minutes to soften the veggies and the meat and reduce the extra liquid. I seasoned it with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. A great fall/winter meal!
