We really liked this.
I added a few carrots to the mix, to make it a one pot wonder, and a little extra stock, that I added a few gravy granules to add the end of cooking time, just to thicken it a little ( the kids like a thicker gravy).
The meatballs had a wonderful texture, and the whole dish tasted great. Real comfort food, made easy.
Made for PRMR.

This is so good, everyone really loved it. I did add some frozen mixed veggies to make it a complete one dish meal and it came out wonderful. I'm thinking of trying it in the crockpot on a day that I have to spend in town. This would be great to come home to. :D

I used ground beef and added a couple of handfulls of sliced mushrooms that needed used up. I cut the recipe in half but added the amount of broth . We liked our stew saucy LOL. Nice flavours and the meatballs were soft and yummy. I chilled the meat mixture a couple of hours before rolling and cooking. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
