It seems like some of the proportions are off. Two pounds of mushrooms were way too many. If I did this again I'd use one pound or less. Also four cups of broth didn't even come close to making soup. I tripled the broth and it only just covered the mixture. It really needs sixteen cups of broth or more. The butter, flour and milk mixture did nothing for the overall recipe and should be omitted. The meatballs were good. Unfortunately I can only give this recipe two stars because no one went back for seconds and it just wasn't that good.
