Reviews for Zippy Ground Beef Skillet
"Great recipe! My family has been making a version of this for 20 years. We often us ground pork in it as well. We usually do not add the salt. Kids and adults love it. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home, I love using recipes that can be quickly prepared with food on hand."
"Simple, hearty and delicious. Also great over mashed potatoes instead of the pasta."
"sounds good!!! have to try"
