This was surprisenly delicious! I am not a big "hamburger skillet" person, but, tonight I was looking for something a little different to do with hamburger, and was surprised at how much I liked this dish! I did have to wing it a bit, with ingrediants that I had on hand, so, instead of the green pepper, tomatoe slices, celery, cabbage, and potatoes, I used fresh, sliced mushrooms and a can of mixed veggies (which included potatoes). I also substituted scallions for the chopped onions. But, even with the changes, I feel like I got the "ambiance" of the dish, and it was delicious! Thanks for much for exciting me about "hamburger skillet" dishes! :-)

My Dh says "this ones a keeper"! I did not add the celery because I was out and used diced canned tomatoes. This has a very good flavor and was very easy to prepare. Thanks Gwynn for the great recipe!

Thanks Gwynn. I was just looking for a recipe to use up some cabbage, green pepper, and celery. I added 1 teaspoon sugar, reduced soy sauce to half the amount listed, and used a can of beef broth instead of the water. Really tasty. Will make this one again.
