    Admittedly I changed this recipe somewhat adding garlic, carrots and toping with Olive Oil but I found that this recipe wasn't as tasty or juicy as I would like. Generally I'm someone who likes a lot of sauce but I think it needs tahini or something like that to liven it up a bit.  -  02 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a rather bland dish... I should have known, it being that there isn't much seasonings/spices to this dish, especially the meat... not something that I would make again.  -  22 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I substituted an anaheim pepper for the green pepper, and added a pickled red pepper and extra tomato, and a couple of whole garlic cloves and this was out of this world!!!!  -  10 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
