Thought I'd try this for my family. I made a few changes but basically kept it the same. Turned out absolutely awesome. Everyone liked it. **Note** I have 3 mentally handicapped adults and a picky husband that I cook for.

Just tried this hot out of the oven. Served with shredded cheddar on top. Delicious! Thanks. Followed other reviewers' suggestions. Will make this again for sure. Used 93% lean burger. Diced and fried the onion in 2 Tbs olive oil with 3 cloves diced garlic in 6-qt Dutch oven. After onion got soft, added burger, black pepper, plus 1 Tbs dried basil. Let meat brown then drained out the juice; in strainer lined wit paper towels. Cubed instead of sliced the potatoes. Added 2 sliced carrots, 3 stalks celery sliced, one red bell pepper diced, 8 oz sliced raw mushrooms. On top, I spread 10 oz of condensed cream of mushroom soup, then the diced tomatoes (drained). Pan was filled to the brim! Baked at 350F for 2 hours. Came out perfect.

My husbands family has been making this since I meet them over 30 years ago, just slight variations. no Parsley add garlic powder, no Beef Bouillon but add farm grown canned tomato's. Its always a hit.

I make something similar called Six Layer Dinner. 1-lb hamburger, 8 medium red potatoes cut into slices, 4 large carrots cleaned and sliced, 2 large onions cut into slices, 2 (16oz) cans whole tomatoes untrained and sliced or chopped, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil.1) cook beef in a pan, drain2) in a large casserole dish layer meat, potatoes, carrots, onion and tomatoes over top. Sprinkle with pepper and basil. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours or till potatoes and carrots are done. Serve hot.Can add any other veg you my like and you could make more layers if you like just may take longer to cook. Just try different things. I got this recipe many years ago so don't remember where. Hope you enjoy.

This was not very good at all. I even added carrots and minced garlic to it, but I can't imagine making this as written with only the beef and potatoes. It ended up just being a pile of bland ground beef, potatoes and carrots. Also, be sure that you keep the heat at medium as it says and check it every once in a while because mine burned on the bottom, and the heat was maybe at medium-high.

I followed the recipe closely. Yep, it's bland. But it's a good stick-to-your-ribs type casserole and lends itself to variations. I appreciate the comments of other reviewers and will try some of their suggestions. Easy to make, stovetop cooking!

This is a very old recipe--I have version (no bullion or parsley) of it in a church ladies handwritten cookbook from about 1930. I add garlic, frozen corn and carrots to mine when I make it.
