"Very easy to make and very tasty. Whole family loved it. Served over baked potatoes.

I did not have beefy onion soup mix so I used regular onion soup mix and added 1 beef bouillon."

"Great easy recipe that lets the beef do the talking! The beefy flavor comes out nicely in the hearty dish. I have substituted a pack of zesty italian salad dressing for the flavor also. Gives it just a little more zing. Great over any pasta or smashed potatoes."

"I made this last night and it was fantastic! I tend to avoid recipes that call for meat and tomatoes unless it is a soup recipe. So glad I didn't pass this one up! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It will certainly be a family favorite in our house!"
