I didn't have the right size pan that they recomended. I used an 8X8 glass pan instead. I cut back on the potates and the meat, but pretty much kept everything else the same. I ended up having to cook it like almost twice as long, and still the meat wasn't all the way cooked. I think next time I will brown the meat first, then bake as directed. It was very tasty once meat was done. My husband even liked it and he is super picky, he almost didn't try it when he saw me making it. And it actually was better the next day for dinner as left overs. Seems like those kidn of dishes are always best next day. It was good over all.
