Fast and easy, prepared as written, no changes, and it turned out really good, Look forward to making this often in the future.

I made this tonight for dinner and thought it was very good. I added a little extra seasonings, but only because I had already thawed 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef so I needed to tweak the recipe accordingly. Hubby enjoyed it too and so did my dog (I omitted the onion so that she could have it too). Overall, a very good recipe and a great new way to use ground beef!

Delicious, fast and easy to prepare. I added a little more seasoning and thinned the gravy a bit for more coverage over all. Family enjoyed it and would like to have again.

I was a little excited about this cause I love pierogis but was really disappointed. No flavor... very bland. Won't make again.

This recipe was awesome. Hubby liked but I don’t like perogies so I passed on this but it was fast and tasty yes, I did taste it. Will make again. Increased to 1 tsp of Italian seasoning and I did add garlic.

I made this several months ago. While ok (needs more seasoning) and I would make it again, it doesn't wow me.

Excellent meal for a week night. Done in half hour! Two weeks after I made it for the first time my son asked me when I was making the Pierogi dish again? This recipe will be a regular. I prefer the gravy to be a little less thick so I cut down to 2 TBSP flour(no need to drain beef). My pierogis and veggies frozen...no problem... just spoon juices over and cover for a few minutes. Still done in half hour! I forgot to add shredded cheddar both times, but it was never missed.

This was not good. It was very bland & needs some seasoning. Perhaps some garlic salt & or Italian seasoning. The store bought pierogie were horrible! If I were to make it again, which is unlikely, I would use Schwans brand. They are so much bettet!Also the directions state to reserve 3 T. Of drippings but doesn't say why. I wonder if the pierogie are supposed to be pre-cooked prior to adding to the skillet ingredients. I would also try that if I were to make them again. Disappointing.

I really liked this recipe. It's super easy and fast. The only thing I had a problem with was the timing after the perogies are added. In order to be heated through I needed to leave it on for at least 10-15 minutes. I added the perogies to the skillet and covered them with the meat sauce to get them cooked better. I used 3/4 cup of peas and carrots mixed and 3/4 cup of corn. This was the right amount for us. I think next time I will use 16 oz of beef stock just so it is a bit wetter to cook the perogies better. Thanks for this one.

I made 1/2 a batch in case we didn't like it, I don't like east in my house. It was delicious. Will make full batch next time.
