"I love the ease of this dish. Veggies and potatoes in one pot. The flavor is great, and the fact that it's in the slow cooker is a double plus for me!! And I usually get enough for 2 meals out of one shot, so this is a great economic dish as well!! Thanks again! :)"

"yuck! yuck! yuck! i hate throwing food away but this was un-salvageable! salty, awful flavor, beans never got tender but the mushrooms were so over cooked they were black and the potatoes were awful too."

"The potatoes had a good flavor which my husband liked. However, I would try adding the beans only for the second half of the cooking time, as I thought they were over-cooked."

"My family really enjoyed this dish. Even my husband (who is really not a big vegetable eater) said that there could have been less potatoes and more green beans. I was shocked. I did make two additions to the recipe. I added about 6 oz. of diced cured ham and a teaspoon of liquid smoke."
