This was a tasty dish!But then thing is i hadn't any worcestershire sauce left or an onion to put in it,but it still tasted nice,so i expect the next time i make it,it will taste even better when i add the worcestershire sauce and onion! - 30 Sep 2009


really cheap to make. Nice but lacks something not too sure what though. - 30 Jul 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. add mixed spices to mince mix before putting in the beans. leave out bouquet garni. for more tomatoe flaver, add a good squirt of tomatoe ketchup. - 23 Nov 2008
