"My family found this bland. Was like eating boiled hamburger despite the fact that I followed the recipe exactly. I would not make it again and would not recommend it to others."

"I made this recipe per the directions. I am fonder of a thicker stew and this one was thinner than my family likes. I wouldn't make it again. We ended up adding more salt as well as it was bland."

"This looks like the dish my Aunt used to make. She prepared it green beans instead of rice."
