One of the first dishes that I ever made. Not your traditional scalloped potatoes. This is an easy and tasty dish. My mom thought she hated sweet's been fun changing her mind.

This made a nice, very easy weeknight dinner. Really liked the sweet potatoes on top. Mine was sort of swimming in liquid and that may be because I used an 9x9 inch pan. Using a rectangular or oblong pan may be the thing to do. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe. I would make it again.

This was really good. I would have never thought of putting ground beef and sweet potatoes together. I had ground beef and sweet potatoes on hand, but no ideas for dinner. This recipe came up when I put in the ingredients. I did not have any green peppers so had to omit them. I also needed it to be gluten free so I used cornstarch instead of flour and wheat free soy sauce. Next time I will include the peppers. I bet peas would be a nice addition also. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made the recipe as directed using a 9x13 " baking dish. It was quite enjoyable . A very different, very tasty dish.
