    I don’t get your grams to ml conversions? 1g is pretty much equal to 1ml but in this recipe it’s halved?

    If you put a solid into something that weighs a liquid in mL like a glass measuring cup for example, it is going to take up more space than if it were a liquid. That is my guess. You're measuring the VOLUME in mL vs the MASS in grams. This is used in this instance because people commonly have measuring utensils in mL but not necessarily in grams. A gram of cheese may not be equal to 100mL of volume.

    Two tablespoons of worcestershire sauce: 12gr carbs there. I don't think you need it here.

    But it’s 4 servings. 3 grams of carb per serving from the sauce. Well worth the flavor boost from the whatsthishere sauce. Unless ones goal is zero carbs, I think this is an acceptable amount of carbs. But we all have different needs.

    This was SOOOO good! I added a little bit of onion and garlic in with the meat (I used hamburger). Other than that I followed to a 't' and it's a keeper!

    this was just OK, for us. We used ground turkey, that may be why it was a little dry.
