Made it with ground turkey and low sodium chicken broth, but it needed more salt.
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 thought that the dish was pretty good! Everyone in my home was telling me how good that it smelled. It definitely does need some extra spices. Next time that I make the dish I will add more flavor. Overall, a very simple and filling dish.
I used a couple of heaping Tablespoons of tomato paste and that added the flavor that I think people were missing. Also, I used fresh oregano which I had on hand and that added some flavor. I also threw in a large handful of spinach to the mix. My kids loved it and my husband had a second serving. This was a wonderful way to get great veggies into my kids. Very good.
Good...but not great... ....Like alot of other reviewers I found this dish bland. There are so many herbs and spices you can mix in to make it taste better.
The problem with that , is if you dont know your way around the kitchen you'll be stuck. Also, this is a GREAT recipe for kids or others who dont like veggies. But since my passion is cooking and I love variety.
I would make this again but I would mix it up to keep it interesting.
For those who thought this a bit bland: if you browned the ground beef with salt, pepper, onion and garlic and then added the other stuff, the flavor would probably be better. I find that seasoning ground beef after it browns makes for a bland dish.
