Flavor - Spicy!! It's not too spicy to eat by any means but just the fact that it's spicy at all is a miracle! Even the sweet potatoes are spicy! A coworker recommended this and mentioned it had some flavor but I'm shocked by how much - for a frozen entree - good stuff!
Meat - the chunks of braised beef are very tender and there's ample sauce. The portion of beef is a little skimpy but not too bad.
Cooking - This is one of those "cook for 3 minutes then stir and cook 2 more" - I never do that - I just did 4:40 and it was just right.
