I first made this back in 2008, and left a very bad photo. So I wanted to make it again and leave a photo that was worthy of the recipe.I did make one change to the recipe, while the beef was browning a bit if seasoning salt was added to the meat.This is a very economical way to use leftover veggies.And it's still as good as it was back in 2008.Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Very flavorable and tasty. Thank You for sharing! October 29, 2009

Good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix for the soup mix and I used canned mixed veggies instead of frozen (personal preference).
