So good, and so easy! The potatoes were tasty, having been cooked with the meat.

Very good as listed! Love being able to use veggies on hand. (But curious what composes Prairie Heritage Herbs for a variation....?)

I put garlic cloves (minced) in the meat, added some creaole seasoning and it was pretty good. My family wants it again.Next time I will add bacon.

I made this for our meal this evening and my husband and I really liked it. All I substituted was canned green beans for the fresh or frozen and Prairie Heritage Herbs for the thyme. Prairie Heritage Herbs is a blend my mother made up and now I continue to make it especially before Christmas for little gifts. Thanks for a great recipe that I plan to prepare when our sons and daughter-in-law are home next time.Lynette
