I've made this dish a few times, and have even printed the recipe for a neighbor to try. I like this dish a lot. My neighbor used veggie crumbles instead of hamburger and said it was not a big hit. I used ground turkey and chicken broth, instead of the beef, and I think it tasted great. Just be sure not to add extra carrot, it will make the dish sweet tasting. I made that mistake once, thinking that I would boost the veggie intake. I stick to the amount of veggies the recipe calls for now. It's tasty.
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.

This was ok. i skipped the onion because I have a sensitivity to them. My daughter and husband really likes it but it is not what we had expected. It was decent.
I could only make this for my husband and me. If my daughter was eating it, I would have to omit the mushrooms because she is allergic to them. But it would make it easier to get my daughter and grand-daughter to eat the onions which they don't really like.
My husband and I are trying to eat heathier and I came across this one-pot meal (great for a work night). We were very surprised on how good this tasted. I followed another's suggestion and chopped the vegetables instead of the vegetables being put in the food processor. My husband is a picky eater and he said he would eat this again! Thank you.

Don't have a food processor, so my veggies were diced by hand. Used ground turkey and chicken broth. Had very good flavor and kept well for lunch the next day. Made a fairly large amount, too, so it added up to a cheap meal!
