This was good comfort food, nothing fancy but good. I made a few changes: I added a little garlic powder to the hamburger as it was browning, after hamburger browned-I added the potatoes and browned them as well. Color was better. Then I added some worchestershire sauce to the beef broth and cooked uncovered until the broth almost evaporated. Yu

this is a sure a quick easy meal; however, it is very plain. I ended up using advice of others reviewers and putting in cream of mushroom, worcestershire, lawrys, black pepper, and several different seasonings to spice it up. Another plus: great leftovers.

With a few adjustments to meet family needs this recipe is a keeper. What I added: liquid beef stock, diced carrots and celery, basil, parsley, garlic powder, salt & pepper and Worcestershire sauce. I also used flour to thicken it so it had a nice, rich gravy. The kids ate it up.

This has become a family favorite. I didn't think it could get much easier, but I was in a hurry last night and substituted a pound of frozen hashbrowns for the potatoes and it worked just fine. I also add worcestershire sauce as well as garlic and onion. We will also top it with cheese sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

I used other reveiwers advice and I added garlic salt, worchestershire sauce, and cornstarch at the end. I also used cavender's spice--I put cavender's spice on everything. In the end, I put salsa and cheese on top. The salsa really brings out the flavor, it almost makes it takes like some imaginary authentic mexican dish. I will be keeping this one for the next time that I'm low in stock in the pantry. Thanks!

This was great with leftover taco meat - seasoned it right up! We topped it with a little cheese, sour cream, salsa and avocado.

I needed something real fast to cook for dinner. I had potatoes and ground meat, but couldn't think of how to put them together. Your recipe helped me in a short amount of time. Thanks.
