    Added some corn on top of the ground beef. Turned out great

    I took the advice in other reviews and added two minced cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and 2 TBSP of Worcestershire sauce plus 1 TBSP water to the meat. I didnt have half and half so i used one cup heavy cream and one cup whole milk instead. I salted the cream sauce added grated parmesan, garlic powder, pepper, dried parsley to it. The kids and I loved it!

    It was a hit for my family but I also adjusted a couple of things.

    Same as people suggested, add some more spices to both the beef and the sauce.. I thought the sauce was a bit thick, so if you're a health conscious eater maybe you want to take a cup off..

    It’s very tasty; however, I did doctor up the recipe with fresh herbs (Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley). Read the reviews and took their advice by adding Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon Mustard, Cayenne pepper and tons of garlic. Without these additions, it would have been only sustenance. Wish I added more liquid to the beef mixture. It was a bit dry.

    This recipe is amazing. As mentioned in the other reviews added some herbs and tomato chunks to the meat (cooked well until all fluid drained) and turned out delicious 😊 will do it again for sure

    Great! But I added all spices in my cupboard to the meat and followed other reviews and added Worcester sauce! Definitely a plus. would have been boring without the additional spices

    This is a great recipe base. I too added a bunch of spices like cayenne, italian herbs, garlic, bay leaf, and celery salt to give it some depth. Other than that it was excellent, super easy to follow, very filling.

    followed review suggestion. was great!
    This recipe is really bland on its own. I followed tips from other comments and it turned out delicious. I added 2 tbs of whorchestershire and 5 cloves of garlic to the beef. I added 3 cloves of garlic, 1 tbs of whorchestershire, a couple tbs of basil pesto, a 1/4 of parmesan cheese, and 5 tbs of djon mistard to the sauce. Yes that's how bland it was until I Doctored the heck out of it.

    I had to add parmesan, garlic and Worcestershire sauce otherwise the sauce and meat were very bland. I added 1 tbs of Worcestershire to the beef and half cup of fresh grated parmesan and two garlic cloves to the sauce... it was fantastic!
