Easy to make and quick! What a fantastic taste. I served it over rice. You can't beat this recipe it was faster then the boxed ones. This is of course 100% better then the Hamburger Help one we use to like. (Notice the pass tense.) Thanks Inez for another winner!

Excellent, inexpensive, quick and easy recipe, just perfect for the end of the week. I used sliced fresh mushrooms instead of canned and sliced carrots, using a little less green peppers. This recipe is so verstile, it's so easy to change the vegi mix for a slightly different meal each time. Thanks Inez for a keeper.

I am always amazed when something so easy and inexpensive tastes so good. This is a great meal, plain and simple. I used the liquid from the mushroom can as part of the water, and served over ramen noodles. I wouldn't change a thing!
