Top Review by smidgentigre smith

We wanted meat in ours--so I added 1# ground beef and a chopped onion. I was impressed with how GOOD it tasted since I made it at 4 & we ate at 6. Usually this type of soup/stew tastes best a day or 2 I'm waiting to see how wonderful it will be tomorrow for lunch! Thanks!
