Reviews for Party Beef Casserole
"Very good. I liked the steak instead of the traditional ground beef you would find in a shepard's pie."
"Meat mixture was a little runny but I sprinkled flour on and mixed it in before I put the potatoes on top. Turned out great!"
"I have been making this recipe for over 10 yrs. Everytime I make it, it is a big hit & GONE!"
"Has anyone made this with leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes?"
"This needed salt and the bottom meat portion ended up a little runny. Love the mushroom and pea combination."
