"Only made half the recipe because only had that much beef and pork and beans. Loved it. Was a little nervous about that much ground mustard, but turned out really good. The kids were arguing about who got the leftovers the next day. We put it on a toasted ciabatta roll too. Definitely will make again."

"I would not freeze this dish as the recipe suggested. Freezing changes th consistency of the beans to mush."

"Loved this recipe! We are a large family that has a weekly Bible study with another large family and I made this last night for our dinner. Everyone loved it and we have leftovers for lunch today. I did use the 1/4 cup of ground mustard as it stated and it was delicious! Great flavor and I'll be passing this recipe along!"

"Made this recipe to try something different. It has a very strong flavor. Was slightly confused on ground mustard. 1/4 cup sounded like way too much unless it was supposed to be prepared mustard. I put only a small amount of both in this dish. Also did not have cloves but I don't think it would have changed how we did or didn't like it. I would not make this again."
