Using 1/4 cup of the soy sauce, this was a winner at our house for an easy and flavorful week night meal. Thank-you!

Very easy to put together, but i feel as though it's lacking good nutrition--and flavor. there was so much ground beef, and virtually no veggies. If I were to create this again, I think I'd halve the amount of ground meat, and add various vegetables. It may just be that casseroles are not my thing...but I'm trying! Thanks for posting :)

This is SOOO good!! My mom has been making this since we were kids, her mom used to make this, and now I'm making it. I mixed in leftover cooked rice so I didn't have to bake it as long. Topped it with those crispy chow mein noodles the last 10 min of baking. YUM!!!! Thanks for posting! UPDATE: I find that 1/4 cup soy sauce is plenty. Also, topping it with the canned fried onions for the last 10-15 min compliments the flavor very well. Served with ketchup, this is truly comfort food!
