Made as written and it was o.k. My husband said to rate it a 2 as it was "bland". I gave it a 3, because, to be fair the recipe does say "any other herbs or spices as you desire". It was really quick though, and I appreciated that. I will definitely make it again upping the spices and adding mushrooms as another review suggested.
I added concentrated beef broth, a can of corn and a can of mushrooms. It was extremely good with mashed potatoes (almost like a savory Shepard's Pie with much more moisture). I will be making this over and over again. It was so easy!! Thanks!
This was ok. It needs more liquid though as it was pretty thick. To us it was pretty bland. We added more garlic and some beef bouillion to it. I would make this again but make some changes to it.
