    Very good recipe but I added some fresh mushrooms and put a dollop of sour cream to the mixture. Also added a little bit of tomato juice to the bottom of the dish and baked covered at 325 for 40 min. they turned out awesome thank you!

    I did add a small can of tomato sauce to the beef mixture because there was too little liquid to cook the rice. Next time I will also double the garlic and add more pepper. I also left out the salt. VERY TASTY! Will definitely make again.
