    A really quick and tasty meal which the whole family enjoyed. I added onions and mushrooms when browning the mince and served with pasta and salad. I would probably only use one stock cube next time though.  -  06 Mar 2014


    I made it just like the recipe and it was SO good! My husband loved it and that says a lot because I call him the Food Diva. My brother-in-law enjoyed it too. Everyone was stuffed and I would definitely make it again! The pepper gives it a nice kick too.  -  22 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not a new recipe to me - but one that I hadn't made in a long time. One tip - if you let this sit and don't serve immediately, be prepared to add more milk. I also upped the flavor a bit by using finely diced red onion browned with the beef and added a small amount of worcestershire sauce plus fresh chopped parsley. Served over toast with sliced fresh tomatoes, this made a very satisfying meal.  -  29 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
