      This recipe got a double wow from us. I had some mashed potatoes/yams to use up so I made this recipe. I may have been alittle short on the quantity but it worked out perfectly for us. I increased the beef abit & used up abit of leftover liquid gravy (for some of the water). I didn't have zucchini in the fridge so I sub'd edamame. I will DEFINATELY make this again & will make sure I have all the ingredients next time, thanks for sharing.

      Delicious! Even I really liked this (yes, I am a picky cook!). I doubled the recipe and cooked in a 13x9" pan. Meat had such great flavor, and the sweet potatoes made the dish. Next time I make it, we'll only be using sweet potatoes and I am going to play with adding green beans also. YUM!
