  1. So tasty, much better than the quick box stuff and just as easy to make! I cooked my egg noodles in the beef broth to give extra flavor to the noodles and just added to the beef/soup mixture. I didn't do it this time but I think a small can of sliced mushrooms would be good added to this dish. Served with a nice salad and bread & butter.
  2. Very nice recipe and easy too! I used whole wheat noodles and added about 2 cups of fresh mushrooms to the onions and grounds beef. Did not have Mrs. Dash but I did add the garlic. I think some sour cream might be a nice addition at the end, sor tof like a strogonoff thing. Thank you for posting this!
  3. This was good and easy to make. I only had a pound of burger pulled and one and a half cups of water and two bouillon cubes. I used Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning and didn't add the dash of salt or the optional garlic powder. It was a quick weeknight meal.
  4. This was very good. I didn't use Mrs. Dash just used McCormik seasoned salt and I used whole wheat egg noodles.
  5. My kids in hailed this. This recipe is why I love zaar. Ok, I didn't grow up eating HH so I'm not sure about the comparison however, I was able to take this recipe and turn it into a gluten free, casein free meal for my family. I will say it again my kids devoured it. I will add this to my rotation


  1. This was quick and easy and my family liked it. I did add 1 clove of minced fresh garlic as well as some fresh parsley. I also added more onion. I did not have beef bouillon so I used beef broth. I will make this again, but use rice instead of noodles. Thank you for the recipe.
  2. This is really good! It's been a long time since I've had anything like this because hubby is particular about ingreds in processed foods, so this is good from scratch. I used Mrs Dash Table Blend and used a soup can of water instead of bouillon.
  3. This was very fast and easy to make. I used a can of Golden Mushroom soup instead of cream of mushroom and it turned out good. It did taste like Hamburger Helper but fresher. My DH and DS love hamburger helper so I will be making this instead for them when they want it. Thanks!
