This was so easy to make and absolutely delicious! It made enough for 4 of us for two nights plus leftovers for lunches. Will definitely be cooking this again!

I made this on Friday night but used cream of chicken soup as I had no mushroom soup, but I did add mushrooms, had some left over so I made a family pie which we are having for lunch today, will definitely make this again very tasty.

Fantastic dish, the first recipe I’ve tried so far and it’s definitely a winner! I substituted chicken soup instead of the mushroom as Aimee did and it tastes amazing. I’m only cooking for two so end up with loads leftover and a bunch of containers full in the freezer for when I can’t be bothered cooking. Definitely something I will be cooking often, and the second time I’ve now started doubling the meat and carrots for even more leftovers.

Thank you for the recipe. Cooked it yesterday exactly the same, but an hour before hand added a carne of corn kernels. Yummy. Will definitely make again

Made this tonight and it was delicious! Even my fuss-pot 5yo finished it without a word of protest. I used 3 potatoes and 3 carrots and left out the peas. I added a can of champignons with 3 hours to go. Served with bread. This will definitely be a regular meal in our household. Thank you!

Love it! Been in for only 3 hours now, not only is it already starting to taste amazing it has my house smelling equally! Definitely make a regular meal!

Really easy and tasty. Doubled the meat and there was still plenty of gravy.
Left overs were even more tasty on toast the next day!
Will definitely be on high rotation in this house now.

This was really nice! My fussy family of 6 enjoyed it. I used 1kg of gravy beef and I used cream of chicken soup instead of the mushroom and added some celery, beans and corn too and it fed us all with a bit left over.
Will definitely make this one again.😊
