This is very quick and easy dish. My brother was starving one night, so I just started throwing things in a skillet! He gave it the name and it sure is good. This is just the basic recipe, and then with additions of seasonings you can have almost any style (Italian, Mexican, etc) meal you want! Our favorite is Cowboy style, with just a little Worcestershire sauce.

I made this the other night because we all had a busy day I did not know what to make. I looked in the freezer and found I had some ground beef so I searched for a recipe and this one sounded interesting. To my surprise I had all the ingriendients except for the green pepper so i just omitted it and it was great! Very flavorful and a cinch to make! Even if you hate to cook you can have a very nice meal in about 30 minutes that yoour family will enjoy! This is wonderful inthe winter because it is almost considered a stew. I also served this with fresh homemade corn bread! Read More

For my husband the name is very fitting. He didn't like it at all. To me it was more like decent-a-muck. Read More

I didn t have green peppers so I used celery onions garlic and carrots chopped fine and sautéed and then cooked ground beef until no longer pink. Then I added one can of diced no-salt tomatoes one can Pork n Beans (didn t have Ranch Style Beans) and teaspoon kosher salt and teaspoon pepper. I cut some roasted corn off of one cob and added that then added the sliced potatoes and cooked until tender. I then added my husband s secret ingredient 1 tablespoon ketchup plus 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce. Then added one tablespoon chopped fresh Marjoram and Basil and served. Very good. Though on thinking back I would have called it Ground Beef Stew. Read More

We chose to give a litle Mexican flavor to this dish. I took a package of taco seasoning and added it. We deleted the Worcheshire sauce. Delicioso! My husband & I enjoyed this meal very much. Thank you Cindy! Read More

We really liked this dish we did make one modification in that we added a half of a packet of speghetti seasoning and it came out great. VERY filling. We may try to get rid of the beans and put in shell noodles next time. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was quick and easy to make. I used RoTel tomatoes to give a more spicy flavor and omitted the potatoes. Served with garlic bread and a salad makes a good quick meal. Thanks Cindy! Read More
