  • Just OK. It does need a lot more flavor. I added some hot pepper to spice it up after tasting it and used round steak instead of ground beef. - 1/5/11

  • This was delicious!! One suggestion, if using real veggies, you need to either use more pineapple juice or add a little water when combining all ingredients, because you don't have the moisture from the frozen veggies to bring the mixture to a boil. Other than that, this was a great dish : ) - 3/14/09
