"This was very good! We really enjoyed it and will make it again. We substituted diced tomatoes for the stewed, and red wine vinegar for the Worcestershire sauce."

"This is very flavorful. Since there are only two of us, the "planned overs" for lunch the next day are even better than the original."

"I have made this dish several times. My family loves it especially my daughter. I found it one day when trying to find a different recipe for ground beef. It's so easy to make."
