Vegetable Beef Casserole created by CASunshine

This one dish meal is great for family, potlucks, etc. The original recipe came from Low Fat Country Cooking but I tweaked it with a few additions. It's a real down home dish!

    I followed this recipe step by step. It was disgusting. There was so much grease that you could not eat it. I used ground sirloin also. It tasted so bland, even if you used more spice, you could not eat it due to the grease. I will never make this again and I do not recommend it.

    I love one-dish meals that are easy, healthy, and economical. Only having to clean one pan more than made up for the chopping! I liked that the ground beef accented the vegetables rather than being the staple of the dish and I was surprised at how tasty it was with such minimal seasoning, though I was heavy handed with the garlic powder. I didn't have any celery or tomatoes but we didn't miss them. Just as a personal preference, I'm going to increase the potatoes and decrease the green beans. In the past, I've had trouble with potatoes taking forever to cook in these sort of dishes, so I sliced them about 1/8" and they came out tender in the time the recipe stated, as did my thinly sliced carrots.
