This is total comfort food for us. Recipe is very easy to throw together and very very good. I did forget to put the chow mein noodles on top of it which I will do in the future but it was very good without them. I made as directed with the exception of adding a clove of minced garlic to the mix. This will be made on a regular basis in this house. Thanks for posting.

My family loved this. I have made it a few times now, and the last time I added a can of chopped water chestnuts, doubled the recipe (so I guess I used 2 cans of chestnuts), and froze half. We recently ate the frozen batch and it was great. I will make this (and freeze it) again.

This was pretty good. I did add a little bit of onion powder and garlic powder to give it a little bit more flavor. I served it over rice. It was easy to make I like hamburger gravy so I will be making this again. I think next time I will add some fresh garlic to it. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC '08.
