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.

This is really a good meal that is quick to make after coming home from a long work day. I didn't have mixed veggies on hand so just used frozen peas and also added some fresh mushrooms. I feel I should not give a 5 star rating since I didn't make the recipe as written but I would give it a 5 star with my changes. I will make again and use ingredients I have on hand..or follow the recipe as written. Can't go wrong either way! Very good the next day as well!!

So good. Made this tonight and it is a real comfort meal. My swaps were using potato and onion pierogi, and frozen corn and french style green beans. Definitely a keeper.

Delicious! My husband and I loved it so much. The only thing I changed is not to add the cheese and I used just potato pierogis cause I don't like cheese of any kind. I will definitely make this again and again! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

My husband just loves this meal. It is a quick take on Shepherd's Pie.
