READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by SoupCookie

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.
