Hamburger Buddy

September/October 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (872 votes)

Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Make it a meal: Serve with a green salad.

"Total comfort food! I've made this dish several times now. My partner actually requests it! My modifications were based upon many suggested by other reviewers: Chop and shred your veggies for the texture, splash of red wine added...

I thought that this recipe was quite tasteless. I added Cavenders and Shiracha sauce, which helped.Adding mushrooms would be a plus.

Solid, comforting meal

I made this recipe with a handful of modifications. I added tomato paste and paprika as suggested by the other users. I did not puree the veggies into oblivion, I just chopped them. That probably really saved the texture. I also added frozen peas and doubled the Worcestershire sauce (don't worry - I used low sodium). It's tasty, hearty, and very family friendly, but it's not a WOW recipe. This dish is a solid citizen, but not a dazzler. I'll definitely add this one to my weeknight repertoire as a stick-to-your-ribs crowd-pleaser.

Kid-friendly, hearty, lots of leftovers, quick, you probably have everything in the pantry already

Hamburger Horror

Never before have I had to throw out a meal. It was truly that bad. Even with the tweaks that other reviewers mentioned, it was simply disgusting. Mushy, weird flavors, and ugly.

Ended up with some yummy pizza from the local delivery place

Great Family Friendly..with just one adjustment

My family just laps this stuff up. My husband often had the box stuff growing up-which I refuse to serve. He thinks this recipe is great. My son thinks it's wonderful. As with any dish of this type, it's even better the second day. ONE big adjustment-if you love thyme addthe 2 tsp, if you think thyme is okay, add less than 1 tsp. It can overpower this dish
