This was a nice meal. My first experience cooking a meal in the microwave. I did change a couple things: I used a pkg of beef gravy mix and 2 tsp. of dried onion flakes, and beef stock instead of water. Between prep & cook time this took 42 min. I think next time i'll prep. my veg. the night before.

This came out amazingly well. I followed the directions exactly and it was wonderful. I did add some purple onion, mushrooms and a beef cube to the water. I never thought something microwaved would be so good, but it was awesome!
