Reviews for Stovetop Hamburger Casserole
"I read the reviews before making this so I added more liquid and seasonings and it made this dish delicious! Don't be afraid to add your own twist to this."
"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.2"
"Good with the red merlot"
"Just plain and not good."
"Tasty...would add more sauce."
"Very average hamburger casserole and bland with one too many starches. Many more like this out there that are better than this, to go to this expense for a marginal recipe."
"This was ok but def needed some spice. 2nd time added Italian spice , salt and pepper with meat & wow what a diff!!"
"I love having different veggies. I didn't have tomato sauce and used 1 can of tomato soup with a dash of hot sauce! It was so good!! Thanks for sharing"
