I agree with the other person who said that you have to cook it longer to get the potatoes done. I took it out of the over when it should should have been done and discovered that it was not. <br/>Once it was really done, the family loved it!

I've loved all of the recipes I've tried so far, but this one was my least favorite. I don't think the 45 minutes in the oven cut it. My potatoes were still very hard and dry.

I did use the suggestion of having peas instead of green beans and having Cream of Mushroom soup rather than tomato. Additionally, after the ground beef had browned, I added cumin and curry powder so the whole thing was "Indian-y". That's the beauty of this dish---after the ground beef is cooked, you can add all kinds of herbs to make this whatever flavor you want. I was amazed that it was so fabulous. Thank you!
