Many other reviewers said, "this is a good base recipe." I think that's code for, "it's really boring unless you dramatically alter it." Yes, it was super easy. The moisture level was just about right. I thought I would like the simplicity of it, but the result was tremendously bland. My children, who eat anything with beef and potatoes, left their plates mostly untouched. I will certainly use this idea to make dinner in the future, but as written, this recipe is a dud.
Nice basic recipe. I added worcestershire and cream cheese. I also substituted dry minced onion for the onion..and layered 2 large carrots (peeled and sliced) with the potatoes. Then I topped it all with (instant) mashed potatoes! My 3 yr old son loved it, as did I. :) Thank you!
I was hunting for something similar to a dish my mother made when I was a child. I loved the texture of the potatoes in this dish, and thought the amount of liquid was exactly right. I also like how easily the flavor can be changed to suit your mood. Thanks for a good, basic recipe!
This was good and easy. I always have cooked ground beef in the freezer so this is a quick meal to throw together when I want something from the crockpot for dinner that night. I used cream of chicken soup cause I don't like mushroom. I did add a bit more of the spices. We will make this again, I'd like to add carrots and maybe some peas near the end.
This was ok - looks strange, and doesn't have much flavor. maybe some changes would spice it up a bit.
This was ok.Needed more seasonings.Kids didnt like it.I think that was due to its looks.
I gave this a 5 star based on some additions I did. I added 2 tsp of curry while browning the beef I addeda 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of 1/2 and 1/2 for the water and added 1/2 tsp of Garam Marsala to the soup mixture, 1 tablespoon of Leas and Perins. I also added shredded cheese sprinkled between the layers. This was one GREAT crock pot meal! Thanks for the great recipe.
This was kind of bland. Needs more flavor.
We really enjoyed this nice easy recipe. I cut the potatoes fairly thin so it just took 7 hours on low. Next time I will add some corn. Thanks
We didn't care for this at all. I don't think there is anything wrong with the recipe, it's just a matter of taste.
