My husband and I made this recipe last night, with a few modifications to suit our taste and time constraints. First, we used instant garlic mashed potatoes to cut down on time. Second, we added chopped onion to the beef mixture. And third, we added some spices (salt, pepper, and garlic salt, I think). It was very good, but I think next time we will substitute Worcestershire sauce for the ketchup and make sure to cook the vegetables a little longer (they were a little under-done). But overall, it was delicious and very satisfying!
