I substituted ground beef for the steak. Price was ridiculous on a small piece of steak. Other than that I made exactly as directed...it was very good but I agree with a previous poster...the veggies were mushy...cooked too long and I do wish there had been more wild rice in the mix. I used Rice A Roni. Will make again but add the veggies half way into the cooking time rather than at the beginning.

This was sooooo delicious! My whole family gobbled it up and said they wished there had been more of it, so I'll probably double the recipe next time so we can have it two nights in a row! My 10-year old daughter is a very picky eater, and she really loved this. I didn't have green pepper, so I put in red pepper instead. I also sprinkled some shredded 2% cheddar cheese on top when I served it, and I served buttered crusty French bread on the side. Yum! This is definitely going in our regular meal rotation.

I found this recipe sort of bland. The celery and green pepper being cooked was mushy and less flavorful and I wonder how they would've been raw. However, my family actually liked this -- even the picky toddler was eating it -- so I will probably make it again.

I made the recipe as directed only adding more beef and more rice and it was so good! I had to adjust the water a bit for the addition of the rice, too. There was only one small problem with this dish....there were no leftovers!!
