    My husband and I really enjoyed this. I added some canned mushrooms and used fresh spinach added toward the end of the cooking. It turned out like a stew, I might try adding other veggies and less potatoes to cut down on the carb count. Very Yummy! - 4/13/09

    WOW! This was FABULOUS! I love the spice mixture; perfect for beef.
    The only changes I made were to use only a tsp of oregano, cut the potatoes into bite-size & not add the kale on top til after everything else was done cooking. I put kale on top, covered & let cook til just starting to wilt. - 5/21/08

    This was a delicious traditional beef stew. Chard made a great green. Since the stem takes longer to cook than the leafy part, I sliced the stem separately and added it in about 10 minutes before I added the greens. - 11/12/08

    This was very good, just a bit hot (have water handy). It was actually our 1st time having Kale greens and we were all pleasantly surprised. It was even better the next day warming up leftovers. Mine turned out to be 8 (1 cup) servings at 300 calories. - 5/18/09

    My hubby's favorite meal! It's SO good. Takes a while to chop everything up, but once that's not it's smooth sailing. - 9/11/08

    I made this exactly as described. It was nice for a change, but probably not one I will make again. I did notice that potatoes are not listed in the nutrient list (but red pepper is) and that the amount of beef per serving is off: 5 oz. x 6 servings = way more than the 1 lb. of beef listed. - 10/3/09

    Very tasty! We all enjoyed it!
    I added 1/4 cup of spicy duck sauce and 1tbs cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken the sauce.
    Served it with fresh steamed green beans! Yum! - 8/16/07

    I found a recipe very similar on a cancer site. I made it for a friend who is having cancer treatments. She and family loved it. I made it for my family and added some more broth and vegies and made it into vegie soup. We thought it was the best we ever had. - 5/15/09

    Ireally enjoyed this recipe. I cook for one, so I did not include all of the greens the first time I cooked it. I added the greens when I reheated at additional meals later. Quite tasty! - 5/18/09

    Superb dish! Hardy and filling. The combinations of ingredients and flavors make it worth the wait. We used kale as the green ingredient, and the results were excellent. Next time we make it, we will use smaller red potatoes. Definitely it should be served with crusty bread. - 5/16/09

    Yummy! I threw in a couple of turnips with the turnip greens and a couple of corn cakes and my dinner was still less than 500 calories. This is a perfect no salt dish that is full of flavor. - 4/9/09

    We love this recipe. However, I do not include the greens as my husband won't eat them. If I have baby spinach at home, I'll throw a little in. Green beans work well, too. - 3/18/07
