  1. My host family LOVED this!!! The didn't even know that it was made in a crockpot! I highly recomed
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It was just ok. Turkey was just too dry. It would have been nice if it was a bit more thicker.
  5. 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.


  1. 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!!!
  2. This was excellent! I'm only giving it 4 stars because I did make a few alterations. I added fresh mushrooms and subed vegetable stock, and instead of garlic salt I used 3 cloves of fresh garlic. I served it over brown rice with hawaiin rolls on the side. My hubby said it is "comparable to nothing" he's ever had, but "the best comfort food!". We also spiced it up with tobasco. The left overs were great! Thanks for sharing.
  3. This was very easy, cheap and good. Will make it again if I am looking for something simple to make. I did not have garlic salt and used vegetable broth instead of beef, it was still tasty. I just wish the sauce was thicker.
  4. This is a very tasty recipe and quite easy to make as well as it utilizes basic pantry items. I did make some substitutions however. I didn't have any white wine so I used cooking sherry. I also used chicken broth in place of beef broth as I was out of that as well. I put in some dried parsley flakes for a bit of color and added flavor. I cut the garlic salt in half. This was served with stir-fried veggies for a delicious meal. My wife and I both loved it and I am sure we will have again. Thanks Miss Diggy
  5. I used cauliflower instead of potatoes, and it turned out pretty good.


My way of rating recipes <br>1 Star - Did not like it, and possibly not edible, will not be making again, unless I specify the chance. <br>2 Star - It was ok, but I will probly not make again, unless I specify the chance. <br>3 Star - This was good, not bad, but not great, and will probly be made again when I have nothing else to make. <br>4 Star - This was great, and will be made again. <br>5 Star - AMAZING dish. Will most definitely be made again. <br> <br> <br> <br><a href=><img border=0 src= alt=Free Web Counters></a><a href=>Cheap Flowers</a>
