I made this on top of the stove rather than in a crock pot because I didn't think there was any benefit to slow cooking (other than if you're going to be gone, having it ready when you arrive back home, and I was at home today). I used small new red potatoes, so I didn't bother to peel them, and threw in a handful of peas that were in the freezer. I think this is one of those recipes that you need to adjust the seasoning to your own taste preference, and that's what I did. I scaled this down to 2 servings, but it easily could have served 3. Served this over egg noodles, and this simply is good, old-fashioned comfort food at its best. Read More

I made this in my slow cooker as directed and unfortunately it did not turn out good at all. I tried to doctor up the flavor but my husband said it still did not taste good. Not intending to offend the contributor or the other 3 reviewers but want to warn others before using good ingredients and having to scramble for a replacement meal like we had to. Read More

This was very easy to make. I didn't have potatoes so I added egg noodles per other reviews. I also did not have time to stick in the crockpot so I cooked over the stove. Everything was done within 45 minutes or so. Read More

I wanted to try something new with ground beef and found this simple recipe for which I had all the ingredients. I also wanted to have time for my grandson and not be busy cooking. I served this with a salad and everyone loved it. My husband was particularly complimentary. Read More

If you do not have potatoes, you could put over noodles. This was really good and I had all the ingredients on hand. The family loved it. I prepare in cast iron pot as opposed to crock pot. I did not have red bell pepper; therefore, I used green bell pepper. Read More

I've made this recipe 4 times now and I rated 5 stars even though I have made some changes. As in a previous review, I have prepared this as stovetop and not in the slow cooker. I was looking for a recipe to duplicate what my husband described his Scottish Mother's recipe of 'stovies' and have kept all of the ingredients but have added mushrooms. He and I both love this.

I rarely rate recipes because I tend to change them before cooking. This time I followed the recipe exactly as written. I found it to be a touch too sweet and soupy. I did enjoy the combination of flavors and ingredients. Next time I will cut back on the ketchup and thicken it up a bit. Thank you for new recipe in my rotation! Read More
