Creamy Beef sauce and our giveaway winner...

The winner of our giveaway who will be receiving a free pouch of THRIVE freeze-dried Strawberries is.... Gina B. of San Tan Valley. Congratulations!

But if you didn't win, (or didn't enter) the giveaway, you can still be a winner with this recipe for creamy beef sauce using the magic mix I blogged about last time.

Creamy Beef Sauce
1/4 cup magic mix
1/2 cup - 3/4 cup water
2 tsp Beef Bouillon (THRIVE sells a great one)
1/2 tsp dried Parsley

Whisk together the magic mix, seasonings, and water in a saucepan. I started with 1/2 cup water, and like I've mentioned before with the magic mix, it thickens beautifully while it cooks. However, the sauce was done before the Salisbury steaks were, so the sauce thickened even more as it cooled. It was a little too thick for what I wanted, so I just added an extra 1/4 cup water, turned the heat on again, and it worked great. Magic mix is very forgiving that way.  So adjust the water according to your preference.

For dinner, we made some Salisbury steaks, topped them with a blanket of caramelized onions, and then this creamy beef sauce. Way better than just a brown gravy. This sauce TOTALLY made the meal. Thanks again THRIVE for making this magic mix sauce possible!
