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 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 added chicken stock, instead of water, as well as cut up fresh green beans and frozen peas (at the very end). I also added some Johnnys seasoning and doubled the garlic. I think this would have been pretty bland without the chicken stock, vegetables, and additional seasoning.

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.

YUMMY! I used ground turkey. Also, I substituted celery for 1/2 of the onion and used chicken stock instead of water. I tried instant brown rice and it worked well, I just had to shorten the cooking time.

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
