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.
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.

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!

My family loved this! The catchy name was the initial draw for my 8 year old; the taste won him over. I used lean ground turkey without any compromise of taste. The food processor makes this recipe an easy, weeknight, nutrition-packed meal!
OK, I admit I didn't tell my kids there were carrots and mushrooms in the sauce...but they really liked it (my 5-year-old loved it!) and my husband liked it so much he went back for a large second helping. A great and tasty way to sneak veggies in.
