Reviews for Clouds at Sunset
"The recipe is good, you need to add a few extra spices to get the flavor you like, but besides that it is good."
"I made this recipe when it first appeared in TOH several years ago. I liked it, and I think I may make a few changes when I serve it again. The meat mixture was a tad bland, so I'll add some garlic powder and steak seasoning. I'd also like to try using sweet potato in place of the carrots."
