Yum! Just did this for dinner with leftover roast beef from yesterday and it was a big hit with the whole family. Really simple to do and a great Monday night supper. Left out the green beans and celery simply because I didn't have any, but added mushrooms instead and they worked just fine. Will deffinitely be cooking again! - 12 Dec 2011
