Top Review by livingstonfran

This recipe is very much like the one that I use with ground meat. I was intrigued with the treatment of the potatoes in this recipe. I thought that it would make the potatoes much easier with which to deal. I did follow the recipe as I understood it. I processed the potatoes in the food processor until mashed potato texture. It looked alright but the texture was gummy for me and hubby definitely did not like them. In the future, I will make the recipe as is except, make regular mashed potatoes with the sour cream etc added. Hubby did say that he much preferred the cubes of beef to the ground meat. Thank you for posting this recipe, I love to try new ideas and it one of reasons I love this site, Keep up the good work.
