This was very easy to put together and smelled wonderful while cooking. I only wish that I had thickened the liquid to make a gravy. This was more soup-like than stew-like. Thanks for sharing this. Made for ZWT6.

I have made this recipe several times now and it is excellent! I use ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also use whole grain bread crumbs and an organic french onion soup mix. I also do not add the sugar. Everyone in the family loves this recipe!
