was the 1st time i ever made it and the entire ohana loved it only thing i did diffrent was add 2 cans mushrooms. will use this recipe over and over very easy to make thanks



This dish was really good! Didn't enjoy cutting celery, onions, and beef. I served over rice, as suggested and my family wants it again. Note: In step 4 of the recipe, I wasn't sure how much water to use. I used the 1 cup of water listed in the recipe for step 2, so I used 2 tsp. for step 4 and it turned out fine.



I have found that some of the best recipes are the simplest. This recipe fits that bill. You can dress it up, or leave it alone, and it still comes out good. Thanks for a good, basic recipe that you can make with ingredients on hand!
