So easy to make and tastes great! I added frozen corn and peas as well and it turned out fantastic! The best part is...no dishes!

excellent and easy! perfect way to teach kids (while supervised) how to make their own easy meals! perfect for a quick meal served over rice!

THIS IS A GREAT FIRST NIGHT MEAL AFTER YOU HAVE SET UP YOUR CAMP SPOT. ALREADY MADE SO YOU JUST POP INTO THE COALS AND ENJOY WHEN DONE.

While the veggies were very tasty the meat was tough and almost inedible

Easy and delicious! I made it for two and it worked great.

This was an easy after-work recipe. Very tasty. We only missed the gravy. Would have to make that on the side next time, otherwise really great.
