It’s that time of year when the days grow shorter, the air gets colder, and the dinners become heartier. And nothing warms you up better than a solid, home-cooked, meat and potatoes meal.
I know the Amish would agree. So, below I’m sharing a special Amish Family Steak and Gravy recipe with you that will do just that—fill you up and keep you warm in these cold months to come. It’s quick, easy and delicious.
