Wonderful. Very inexpensive and very easy. I tend to add lots of 'extras' to recipes (such as carrots, celery and lots more garlic and spices), but I didn't for this and it was very flavorful. It was like eating a thick stew. I did use extra-lean beef, browned it w/the onion (and yes, a little minced garlic). This was done on low and was more than ready to eat after 5 hours. Served it w/sides of steamed broccoli and peas. Thanks.

This dinner was just okay for my family. I followed the recipe exactly and cooked on High for one hour, then on Low for 3 hours and the potatoes were fairly mushy, but still tasted good. The soup mixture wound up very watery (like I feared) instead of saucy (like I hoped), and I had to add some cornstarch to thicken it. I think the biggest complaint was that it was too bland and that it just tasted like the typical "cream of whatever" soup meal. My husband did say that he wouldn't mind me making this again as long as I added some spices and other flavors. While we didn't fully enjoy it as a stand alone dinner, I think that it is a great base recipe that you can use to build other great meals. I also love the cost factor. The cost for the entire crock pot full was around $4.00 since I had most of the stuff on hand to begin with. I think next time I make it, I will add garlic (instead of garlic salt), some Marsala wine and fresh mushrooms and see what happens.

It was just ok. Turkey was just too dry. It would have been nice if it was a bit more thicker.

Taste is a tad bland but the family enjoyed it. Presentation is OK (I wouldn%u2019t make it for guest). Its easy to make so its worth a try.

This was tasty. I put the turkey in raw and it came out just fine. I opted for three large cloves of garlic instead of the powder. Next time I would use half as much condensed soup and twice as much beef broth. I also might be a bit more generous with the potato. Will definitely make this again.

This is DELICIOUS!!! I changed it a bit by using 3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of garlic salt, Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup, and omitting the wine and steak sauce (not a fan of either of these). I also put the turkey in raw instead of browning in advance and it was fine. A great recipe!!!

I goofed and didnt' get this in as early as I planned - it cooked for about 3 1/2 hours on high and was still fine! I took DaniRoze's suggestion and added fresh mushrooms (10 oz) and used minced garlic instead of the garlic salt (we are very careful about sodium in our house because of HBP). I didn't have any white wine open (although I could have used this as an excuse!) and didn't use the steak sauce. It was quite liquidy when I was done - probably because of the mushrooms giving off all their water, but still quite tasty! Next time I'll not use the beef broth when I use mushrooms!
