This recipe tasted great and went together quickly. I would of like a little more flavor and that is what kept me from giving it 5 stars.
I added green bell peppers and carrots. Left out the sprouts because I didn't have any.
I pre-preped everything and it worked out well.
Overall great recipe. Thank you for posting it.

I'm giving this a five star because of how fast this was to make and my five year old had nothing left on her plate. I did however only use 1 lb of hamburger and instead of the fresh celery and the can of bean sprouts, I used a 28 oz can of La Choy Chop Suey Vegetables. Thank you for a quick, delicious and economical meal.
