I make this recipe all the time. It's actually a Campbells Soup recipe though so you can most definately use Cream of Mushroom soup and French Onion soup. I add a full container of quartered cremini mushrooms and it makes it even better! You've GOT to try this recipe. It is SO easy and beyond delicious!!! I make it again and again and it's probably my favorite thing on earth.

Plan to try soon---was looking for a new recipe for some beef stew meat and this one sounds great. Chef #426004 doesn't mention where he lives, but Campbell's Beefy Mushroom Soup can be purchased from several places online for anyone else who can't find it in their local grocery store.

checked 2 huge grocery chains here - no one has beefy mushroom soup - haven't for years. Decided to substitute beef broth instead but was so runny. Added several more cans of mushroom soups - ended up being OK - tasted pretty good. Had it over mashed potatoes. Ended up with a full 8-qt crock pot full. So much left over. Originally made just over a double batch. Ended up with maybe 4 times the recipe with all the extra soup that was added. Will have some leftovers on noodles next time. I'm a guy fixing this - maybe a gal might have substi- stuted something else more like the beefy mushroom soup.

This is pretty darn good. It was a bit salty for us, so I stirred in some sour cream and that calmed down the salt and made it like a stroganoff, very tasty! The meat is to-die-for tendery. Had this over garlic noodles. Thanks!

I cook for my Senior parents and my sister about 3-4 times a month. I use the slow cooker all the time. This one is a keeper. ** I also could not find beefy mushroom soup so i replaced it with regular Cream of Mushroom. The change i made was to saute 16 oz of fresh shrooms and a large onion with 3 large cloves of garlic until they were soft and most of the water removed then added to the soup/beef mix about 2 hours into cooking. Then let it go and OMGoodness it was good! Maybe it was the onion and fresh mushrooms i added but this was not salty and was perfect consistency poured over Rigatoni.

I make this all the time. But I use one can of campbells condensed healthy cream of mushroom since it is a bit lower in sodium and one can of french onion condensed to 3 lbs meat. I always add sour cream at the end for a more stoganoff flavor. Also always add some mushrooms, garlic and onions. It can also be baked at 300 for 3-4 hours, and it will melt in your mouth. Serve over noodles.

I also could not find Beefy Mushroom Soup and substituted with Cream of Mushroom and I also added fresh mushrooms. It still came out really well and I am curious to know how it tastes with beefy mushroom. I am definitely going to try this again and hopefully I will have all of the ingredients listed next time. Cooking time was less for me. It was barely six hours.

This has become a frequently made meal at our house. I add extra canned mushrooms and serve with biscuits. Everyone loves it!
