      Martha -- this was a tasty and easy dish that really pleased the picky eater in our family -- one we will definitely have again. Easy on the budget, too! I do think the amount of cornstarch may be a little high -- when I added it, my beef mixture turned into a clump, and I could really taste the cornstarch -- so I thinned it back out with some additional soy sauce & water.

      Very good, solid comfort dish. I left out the onion rings for reasons of fat. It's good over toasted English muffins too. Canned beans work in place of the frozen ones. Goes well with corn bread.

      Good, hearty food. Tastes good on a winter day. And it is so simple to prepare. I used 1/2 of a red onion and lots of extra garlic. No problem with the cornstarch here. I served with rice and onion rings. Thanks.
