Brilliant - fantastic, definitely comfort food and easy! Perfect on a cold, rainy winter's night......what more could you want in a crockpot recipe? Thanks RenMyr

This made a very tasty stew, although in future I'd skip the extra sliced onions. The onion soup mix added enough onion flavor for me. It was certainly easy to put together and we enjoyed our dinner. We did wind up with leftovers, so I'd say this is more than two servings, but I guess that depends on the appetites of the eaters!

This recipe was really tasty and very easy to put together in the morning. I did not have any green pepper but don't think the flavor was compromised. I served with garlic toast. This will be on my list for frequent use.
