4 out of 6 loved it! The other two liked it.

I used regular beef broth and sour cream instead of the healthier versions suggested. I am a "dumper" with seasonings, so our dish had plenty of flavor. I also use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. In my experience, garlic powder adds more flavor than fresh. I know this must be killing some of you out there! Sorry. I did measure the thyme. All of my kids loved this recipe.

easy, good flavor, vegetables completely disguised

Garlic powder adds plenty of salt. Pass. I use lots of fresh garlic - never less than four cloves.

Threw the whole thing in the garbage!!

I have NEVER had a recipe that I just threw in the garbage after tasting it. Waaaaay too much Thyme. The meat and veggies turned into a big mushy mess. The whole dish had zero flavor to it. GROSS GROSS GROSS!!!

It was easy to make.
