Reviews forHearty Skillet Supper
"No stars! I have never submitted comments about a recipe, so this should tell you a lot. This dish has no flavor. I’m surprised it’s a Taste of Home recipe. It had no flavor, even after substituting beef broth for the water. My husband asked me to delete this recipe so I would not mistakenly make it again."
"We loved this dish! My son stood over the pan drooling, so in the interest of faster, more even cooking, I used a mandoline to slice the carrots and potatoes instead of dicing. Perfect!"
"this recipe was the best.my family couldn't get enough of it.was made two nights in a row."
"This doesn't deserve any stars. Everyone hated it. Not only was it dry, but extremely bland--unless you enjoy the taste of excessive salt. Very disapppointed in this one."
"I'm not giving this any stars.....this is one of the worst meals I have ever gotten from this site."
"We had this absolutely delicious dish tonight. A definite 5 stars. We loved it and it is already in our dinner rotation menu. After reading the reviews, I added some chopped red pepper but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The flavor is outstanding. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"I doubled the garlic, soy sauce, and rice. I used converted rice because I wanted the grains to remain separated and cut down on the starchiness. I added celery and crushed red pepper flakes, substituting seasoned salt for regular salt. The result is like a better version of Hamburger Helper."
"Very good. I used ground lamb cause my husband does not like ground beef. I also added red pepper i had on hand. We added a little more salt and pepper. Will make again"
