MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2015

"Even after going thru all the comments and doctoring up the recipe with some suggestions, this was still just a so-so dish. Definitely have to leave cover a lot longer, to get rice, potatoes and carrots soft enough. Added additional beef broth, chili powder, garlic, Italian seasonings, worchestershire sauce, and it's just not doing it for this family. Glad I only mad a 1/2 batch!"
