    This was really good. I made the recipe with a few changes. I cooked the veggies first and removed them. Then I cooked the meat. When the meat was browned I added the veggies back in. I then added a couple of Tbls flour and mixed that around.Then I added a couple of cups of beef broth and stirred to make a gravy. Then added the rest of the seasonings. I cooked up some elbow macaroni and added that. The family loved it and so did I. The flavor was awesome.  -  29 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe and scrumptious. I made it without the jalapeno and green beans, but added some Tabasco sauce to give it the extra bit of flavor. Very satisfying meal. Next time I'll serve it with rice.  -  30 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe called to me b/c the ingredients sounded like just about everything that I put into a Cottage Pie (minus the mashed potato topping.) Once it was prepared (exactly as written, w/ the minor exception of more green bell pepper than red), I was disappointed to find that it tasted like a vinegar-ey, sugar-ey hamburger stir-fry. My husband gave it a 4 (although he stuffed his servings into a warmed tortilla w/ salsa and cheese), my 3-year old wouldn't touch it, and I gave it a 1, so we'll settle for 2 stars. Perhaps w/ some substantial changes that would either turn it into more of an actual stir-fry, or into a Cottage Pie, I would've enjoyed it more, but as written, I just couldn't shake the over-powering taste of vinegar and sugar. Thanks for giving me a chance to try something new though!  -  27 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
