"I really liked this recipe. It's super easy and fast. The only thing I had a problem with was the timing after the perogies are added. In order to be heated through I needed to leave it on for at least 10-15 minutes. I added the perogies to the skillet and covered them with the meat sauce to get them cooked better. I used 3/4 cup of peas and carrots mixed and 3/4 cup of corn. This was the right amount for us. I think next time I will use 16 oz of beef stock just so it is a bit wetter to cook the perogies better. Thanks for this one."

"This is really a good meal that is quick to make after coming home from a long work day. I didn't have mixed veggies on hand so just used frozen peas and also added some fresh mushrooms. I feel I should not give a 5 star rating since I didn't make the recipe as written but I would give it a 5 star with my changes. I will make again and use ingredients I have on hand..or follow the recipe as written. Can't go wrong either way! Very good the next day as well!!"

"Delicious! My husband and I loved it so much. The only thing I changed is not to add the cheese and I used just potato pierogis cause I don't like cheese of any kind. I will definitely make this again and again! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!"

"I really enjoyed this dinner. I grew up on pierogis and we use to just put butter on them. I like finding recipes that use other things to top the pieorgis. This was comfort food for me! I don't think I would change a thing on the recipes. Will be making this again, it was very easy!"

"Rating this recipe *4* stars, since will need to make adjustment. Have no beef broth in pantry (used up last can Friday), so will sub. chicken broth. Do you think chicken would make a significant difference in taste? I'm sure hoping it doesn't. Have no instant in to nmake broth, either."

"I used 3/4 lb of ground serlion for a meatier taste at the same price...2 cups of beef broth (Organic Better Than Boullion - a mainstay in my kitchen now!)...substituted brown rice flour for the thickener and went with potato-onion pierogis...omitted the cheese altogether.
