Hamburger Buddy

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (813 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.

I had surgery in my mouth to remove a tumor and my sense of taste has been affected, therefore, I need a lot of spices to enhance the taste. This dish was WAY too bland for my taste. Too bad because it was so simple to put together. I can only say that I won't be making this dish again.

I made this last night. I chopped up veggies and added a cup or so of frozen veggie mix. It was pretty good. Dont forget to add cheese! Although, that will add calories.

I tried to make this dish extra healthy by using ground turkey breast instead of ground beef.I strongly urge you not to try this! It was horrible. It wasn't edible at all. It turned out an orangy mush that lacked flavor. Yuck!

Hated it! Brought it to a pot luck and not sure if people were just being nice, but my husband and I hated it. Would rather have something that tasted more like stroganoff. It's only saving grace is that my one year old seemed to like it - we have been giving her the left-overs.

I made a few tweaks and this came out very well. My two boys and DH loved it. I used the grater attachment on the food processor and grated all the veggies. Also, I replaced the water with stock to boost the flavor. Very good-I am sure this will make it into my regular weeknight rotation.
