    Pretty good. I added some corn and green beans just because I had some frozen vegetables to use up so I took out a few carrots but it still tasted good. - 8/26/08

  • My husband made this for us yesterday afternoon. He said it was easy to make. It was delicious and hearty. We will probably add peas next time we make it. - 9/19/11

  • I adjusted the amount of salt, as I was using koshered meat. Instead of plain ol' water, I used home-made vegetable stock: much tastier. It's a delicious dish. - 3/10/11

  • This was very good, I didn't have any cornstarch on hand so I used gravy mix to thicken it. Family loved it! - 12/31/08

  • We really liked this recipe. We used 1 tsp of Worcestershire since the recipe didn't say how much to add. Next time I will cut the beef into smaller pieces - like 1 ince cubes. Very good. My husband and teenage son polished it all off in one day. - 11/16/08

  • Very good...left out the sugar and half of the salt...served with a crusty bread and it doesn't get much better than that. - 8/22/08

  • Worcestershire was left out of the ingredient list but in the body. I did not know how much so just added a couple of shakes. My meat cooked faster than the recipe said, maybe because I covered the pot. I added some left over peas at the end also, just long enough to heat through. Delicious. - 8/22/08
