I used this as a template to do a stove top version, and it was delicious! I got the sauce going as directed (in a pot), but I added more water and continued adding water as necessary so it could cook together nicely without getting too thick or burning. We were low on money so I used ground chuck, browned it, and then added it to the sauce as instructed. I let that cook for a couple if minutes as I boiled the noodles, and then as my noodles were finishing I melted the cream cheese into the sauce. This is a delicious, very easy dinner! It also re-heated very well. Read More

Gravy was good but I have never had good luck with stew beef. Too chewy. Better to use ground beef. Good luck. Read More

So I made this today and the sauce was absolutely delicious. I didn't use as much cream cheese as the recipe called for (I used about 5oz) but still had a really nice consistency to the sauce. My beef did get a little tough. Not sure why I asked the butcher for stew beef. I might have left the crockpot on high a little too long. It's def something my partner wants me to make again! And it was quick and easy. I paired it with some egg noodles and a salad. Read More

My husband and I had this tonight, and we both loved it. It was very filling; and it was the perfect meal for a chilly winter night in New England. Quick, simple and delicious. Read More

I loved how easy this was to cook in the slow cooker. I have a slow cooker that browns, so I browned the meat and sauteed some onions and mushrooms then followed the rest of the instructions to the letter. Super simple and really delicious. Read More

We just tried this recipe for the first time tonight... it was a hit! I am not the most kitchen-savy wife but I felt confident enough to give the crock pot a go. I took another reviewer's advise and only used half of the onion soup powder. It turned out great! Husband loved it and has requested we add this to our rotation. I used about 1.3 pounds of stew cubes from the store and I think if I had cut them smaller I could easily doube the rest of the recipe and have more than enough for guests. I am anxious to see how it fairs as a reheated leftover. Read More

I loved this considering I used ground beef and I did not have sour cream on hand so I was hoping it would still taste good and good enough it turned out yummy!!! Read More

The only change I made was cooking on low over 6-7 hours:) beef was super tender and everything tasted amazing! I added too much water but just added a little flour before serving to thicken:) thanks for sharing!! Read More
