    The flavor was wonderful and so easy to make. I would cut down on the cooking time though. I used no salt ketchup to cut down on the sodium. I would also like to see a little bit more liquid.

    My husband loves this recipe! I would add more carrots and green beans. My husband loves all the beans. It is yummy and easy to make. I will try it with corn bread next time! My friends also asked for this recipe after I heat up my lunch in the lunch room!
