Cajun Beef Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.
This is really good recipe...I read the reviews and glad I did...I did not drain my tomatoes...It would have really been dry...Only things I changed was, I used one can of Ro'tel for one of the cans of diced tomatoes and one cup corn and one cup broccoli spears...Didn't have the green onions...Made it in a slightly larger 7x11 dish...It was to the top..
Excellent! Flavorful, colorful, good use of vegetables. Used salt free Cajun seasoning to cut down on sodium content. Cornbread muffin mix is high sodium.
This is the best dish I've had in quite some time. Didn't drain the tomatoes. I added about 3/4 of a pablano pepper a large jalapeno. I like spicy. A can of corn and Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. Not only tastes delicious but is very colorful to serve. I forgot, bunches of cheese. Thank you for sharing
There is no seasoning or cheese listed in ingredients but are in directions. Please clarify.
I loved this. I did read the reviews and did not drain the tomatoes. It reminded me of an upside down tamale pie. It almost didn't fit in the pan. I think there was enough of the meat mixture to use a 13 x 9 pan but if I did that next time, I would use two boxes of cornbread. Delish!!
This did not fit my 11x7 dish. The cornbread was too thick. The hamburger mix was too wet. The cornbread would not cook in the middle. I had to scrape off the hamburger, which left a hole. Did not look good, until I filled the hole with the hamburger. I agree that it tasted weird. I am surprised the family ate it. Need to take this recipe back to the test kitchen.
Thank you to other commenters who suggested leaving the tomatoes undrained. I happen to have some very good Cajun seasoning on hand (Hy's), and I am always looking for recipes where I can use it. I am not sure about the veggies, however. I might make other substitutions. Nevertheless, this looks like a really good base recipe.
Delicious. I also did not drain tomatoes after reading comments. I did add some onion and green pepper to the beef when cooking. Instead of the mixed veggies, I added a can of Mexicorn and a can of diced green chilies. We like it a little spicy here. I loved the way it turned out. Thank you so much for the recipe. And hello from Rockford Il. Just south of you.
If the corn bread is on the bottom of the pan, how do you get a corn bread crust?
This is a very easy to prepare recipe that is great tasting. I make it with ground chicken instead of the beef and usually use just frozen peas. I don't bother thawing them first as they heat up just fine in the skillet. I have also used taco seasoning in place of the Cajun seasoning and find both really good.
