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

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 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

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 didn't get it. It seemed like too much ground beef compared to the rest of the ingredients to be eaten in a bowl like chili or stew, but also seemed weird to just have on it own. I decided to serve it over a piece of bread which soaked up the juices and still tasted alright. Would probably be good over hawaiian sweet bread. My family ate it and liked it okay but said they wouldn't want to do it again. Read More

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
