“This is another Rachael Ray recipe I make all the time. The only modification I made was to cut the meat in half, from two to one pound. I simmer mine for about 45 min when I have the time.It is also good without the corn cakes.”

    lb 90% lean ground sirloin

  • salt and pepper

    tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    garlic cloves, minced

    red bell pepper, chopped

I am a former retail management slave who is now a stay at home mom who absolutely loves her job. I have an eight year old, a two year old and a nine month old who all bring their own kind of joy to my life. My favorite thing in the world is to cook. We have a real, from scratch family dinner almost every night. Please don’t be offended if I somewhat change a recipe in my review. I look at recipes sort of as guidelines, and alter them according to inspiration. I’ve received alot of helpful advice from reviews, that’s why I share what I’ve done differently. With my little ones I’m pretty busy, but I LOVE this site and plan on being even more active as they get older.
