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.

Yum. I LOVE sweet potatoes and am allergic to chicken, so I've been researching unique ground beef recipes. This is one of my favorites - a keeper. Making it again tonight. (Side note - my children complain about everything and although they like the flavor of the beef, they don't like the sweet potatoes.)

My family loves this! I think if I made two pans it would have been gone. It is like meat loaf with yummy sweet potatoes on it. I used 1 .5 lbs of hamburger. This is a keeper:)

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING! So easy to make & so wonderfully tasty! The only change I made was in NOT peeling the potatoes (I love those skins!), & we were completely satisfied with it ~ COMPLETELY! Thanks so much for posting a great recipe keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]

This was a surprise hit!! I wasn't sure about the ground beef not being cooked before - almost wrote you to ask if there was a mistake in the recipe!! But no, this turned out great!! Loved it!! Put a little less brown sugar and followed your recipe for the rest. Thanks BK!! :)

The first few minutes of dinner were filled with obnoxious MMMMM's. This is SOOOOO good! I will definately be making this again! Ditto from my roommate. I followed the recipe exactly, but I think it would be good with ground turkey or even chicken breasts. It also made the house smell heavenly!

Really enjoyed this recipe, although I had to modify it for the ingredients we had on hand. I used ground turkey and fresh squeezed orange juice. I can't wait to try it with pineapple juice sometime, however my family liked it this way. Thanks for sharing!
