"I was extremely disappointed with this recipe. The only change I made was using onion instead of mushroom for the sauce.

My husband and I found the sauce to be extremely bland, and my husband who likes mushrooms said even if I'd used mushrooms instead it still wouldn't have much flavor. Maybe I needed to use salted butter?
For the meat part, I don't know what went wrong there either. I had to cook the meat longer than suggested because the inside was still very red. Because I had to cook it longer, the crescent roll got pretty dark. Despite the dark exterior, the crescent roll was very soggy, especially the bottom.
I think if the sauce had more flavor and the crescent roll was actually crispy, then this would have been a good recipe. If someone can tell me where I went wrong, I'm all ears. I really want to like this recipe, but as-is, I was disappointed."

"My family loved this and that isn't an easy feat to accomplish ! I will probably add some seasoning to the meat next time to give a bit more flavor and definitely double the sauce."
