"I made a couple of changes to the recipe. I cubed the meat and coated it with some seasoned flour before I cooked it. My kids absolutely loved it and said it was definately a keeper in the recipe box."

"I substituted the frozen vegetables with some diced carrots and potatoes and simmered for thirty-five minutes, but only because some people in the family are fussy about their veggies. Everyone loved it and what was leftover tasted even better the next day."
