Hamburger Buddy

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

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (869 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.

This was one of the worse recipes I have ever made. I made it to take to work and none of my coworkers would eat it after the initial taste. I thought I followed the recipe precisely but thought there was too much thyme and not a good taste. My husband wouldn't eat it either and I put it down the garbage disposal. I usually like your recipes and have made many of them but this was definitely bad!

This was wonderful comfort food, and a very versatile dish as well. Definitely in the rotation for weeknight meals.

This is delicious!! I too have made tomato-based versions, and I like this one better. I've made this twice and chopped the veggies by hand to make bigger chunks, which gives a perfect texture that my 16-month old loves. Hand-chopping seemed faster than the processor, since you have to pre-chop anyway. And no extra equipment to clean up. Also chopped veggies the day before so cooking next night went very quickly.

Loved this recipe! Didn't have dried thyme so used fresh. Garnished with a dollop of sour cream, a sprig of thyme and a sprinkling or pecorino romano. Agree that a sprinkling of pecorino romano added the perfect touch!

This is absolutely delicious!! Like other reviewers, I too have made tomato-based versions, but I thought this was a little better. I've made it twice, chopped the veggies by hand (day before so took no time to prepare next night) and the chunkier texture was perfect - and my 16-month old enjoys the small veggie chunks. Hand chopping took less time since you have to pre-chop anyway - and no extra gadget to clean up.
