"Just made this for dinner tonight. I agree it is dry. Will add more sauce and other spices when I try again. If that doesn't work, won't bother again."

"Very bland, and not nearly enough liquid. I would agree with others that there are so many more skillet recipes out there that are far better. To fix this one would take a major overhaul."

"This needed adjustment. There was not enough liquid. I added two cans of beef broth and another can of tomato sauce. Also I added more seasonings, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, chili powder and more salt & pepper. This actually turned out quite good ,my husband liked it. This made a lot , good inexpensive meal for a big family . I did just use one lb. of ground chuck as that is what I had on hand.
