These are great with any kind of beef. My kids love them too! They always fight over the carrots!

I actually wanted a sauce to serve over asparagus and this was perfect. I took one of the reviewers suggestions and only used 4T butter 2T lemon juice half the salt and pepper and less Italian seasoning than the recipe called for. It was absolutely delicious. Read More

Great way to add a little zing to veggies. I make these with just the carrots - no potatoes. Read More

Great potential! I used the amt of potatoes/carrots required AND I added 1 small head of broccoli chopped and a small sliced zuchinni and there was still a pool of butter at the bottom of my dish. The taste is very good but next time I will use only 3-4 TBLS butter 2 TBLS lemon juice half the salt and half the italian seasoning to the same amt of veggies and all should be fine. These would be great with seafood! Will make these again! Read More

Very good recipe! I agree that 6 T. of butter was too much... next time I'll reduce that. My main problem with this is that I really didn't care for lemon with potatoes. Just kind of a strange combination of flavors to me. But I loved the seasoned butter with the carrots so next time around I'll skip the spuds and mix the carrots with other veggies. Zucchini broccoli cauliflower... I think they'd all be great. Also looking forward to trying this with fresh herbs from the garden this summer. Thanks Mikki! Read More

This was a good recipe....helped me eat my carrots....LOL! I did make a few changes. First I reduced the amount of butter and lemon juice and did not add the italian seasoning (I don't really care for it). I boiled the carrots (because I don't have a steamer) then added the butter lemon pepper (as suggested by another user) lemon juice and salt then mixed them all in one pot. They were really good. A keeper! Read More

I thought these vegetables were good. Next time I will use a little less lemon and more salt. I used my wok to steam my vegetables and it was a lot less work. Read More

Very delicious! I love anything lemon! I refused to buy Italian Seasoning so instead I searched for the recipe on this site. It was simple to make since I had all of the spices (okay all but one) and it tasted great. The potatoes were too soft and next time I won't cook them quite as long. Read More
