    This was ok. It was very bland. Will need to add some spices next time. - 6/20/18

    Quite tasty! I used low-sodium tamari and 90% lean beef as that's what was on hand.
    Took a hint from MARICAM3 and added 1 Tbls of sesame seeds to skillet to toast some before starting the browning. This one is a keeper! Thank you!

    Very Good
    I made this the other night and my family REALLY liked it. So did I! I made it Wednesday night and it kept nicely in the fridge. I reheated it for dinner on Fri and it tasted great and we had the last of it tonight Saturday. it is healthy and hearty. I only had raw honey on hand and it worked great! - 10/19/14
