I have been making this recipe since 02'. My family enjoys both recipes that go with it. They forgot to include Beef Stuffed Peppers can also be made from the beef starter. You can find the recipe on Taste of Home website.

This is a wonderful way to plan ahead... however, adding the gravy and/or soup mix just isn't necessary. You add more recipe options when you don't pre-season it.
