    This was not a big hit with our family. I had to leave out the cheese for my daughter. It wasn't terrible. It is OK. once in a while . I guess it needs more flavor. I will add some garlic next time I try it.

    This went over well in my household. Everything cooks beautifully if vegetables are sliced on the thin side and uniformly. Next time, will use leaner (used 80%) ground beef as I did find it to be a little greasy even though I drained it well. Kind of a homemade upgrade to Hamburger Helper, it was a hearty, all-in-one meal that I can use any week night.

    This is a quick, comfort food meal. I add minced onion when cooking the beef. I also find it easier to combine the water and gravy mix before adding to the ground beef. I used sweet potatoes because that is what I had. As long as the potatoes and carrots are sliced thin, they will cook per the recipe timing (about 20 minutes). I love cheese but this doesn’t really need it — personal preference. If I want cheese, I just add it to the individual serving and not to the whole dish. Next time I’m going to add a few more seasonings to punch up the flavor. Overall, a recipe I make when I just want an easy, filling meal.

    This was good but somewhat lacking in flavor; we had to use quite a bit of salt and pepper at the table. Also, for some strange reason, even though I drained the browned beef completely; the finished dish was somewhat greasy.

    I had low expectations for this, but it turned out deliciously amazing! Added splash of Worcestershire sauce for a bit more tang. It took a long time for my potatoes to get tender (but I sliced them thick) but I prefer them that way. Only added a handful of cheddar at the end...the idea of cheese and carrots strikes me as a bit odd. Definitely will make - and enjoy - again soon.

    Very quick and simple and enough to feed my family and keep them full.

    I have been making this ever since it was first in the magazine, we all love it. I make just as written and I have doubled it. Slice the potatoes and carrots on the thin side, they will get done in time
