I saw this recipe when it was introduced to the world as an internet craze. I saw the ranch packet and au jus packet and turned my head away in disinterest. I was not snubbing anyone who chose to use this method, I just knew it wasn’t for me. I prefer to go the all-natural route when cooking. Who knows what they really add in those little dry packets of spice and whatever.
My recipe DOES NOT use any pre-mixed spice packets at all. I conducted a little research and came up with an excellent substitute using the same flavors with fresh herbs. You can also sub in dried herbs if you don’t have access to the fresh. The ratio is the same. Instead of the au jus packet, adding flour to the sauteed onions and creating a roux works just as well. It provides ample flavor and thickening of the sauce. You do not need to add water or stock to this dish. The meat exudes plenty of moisture to create a sauce. I served the meat over mashed potatoes and it was delicious!!!
