We all really liked this. The only things I did different were to season the beef with some salt, pepper and garlic powder and to make 12 meatballs instead of six since 4 people were eating it. Read More

I had some problems with this. I used a cheaper brand of Alymer tomato soup (my problem) and had to add 1 more can of Campbell's soup. 15 minutes was too long for my pressure cooker. Meat was overcooked and potatoes were disintegrating. (Blame that on my pressure cooker). Will add more spice and jazz up (add bread, seasoning and milk) the meatballs. My cooked meat (lean ground) was hard. I think this recipe has great possibilities. Read More

I liked it a lot except it seems like it needs some seasonings to give it maybe a little more flavor. I made my own meatballs cause I thought plain hamburger balls would lack flavor. I think it would be interesting to maybe try a beef gravy in this recipe perhaps with a packet of onion soup mix. Read More

I have made this three times now, its very easy and delicious. Use beef broth in place of the water and add a little burger season to the meat prior to making the meatballs. I also pour the soup over the meatballs only, which gives the meat a great flavor. Read More

What a great recipe. So simple and delicious. With the pressure cooker you can go from prep to table in under an hour. Many of the major soup companies are making different types of soup starters that go well with this. Just tried a chipotle and tomato soup that was great. Read More

Great base recipe! However, it is rather bland so be mindful of that if you're new to this one. I threw in a few jalapenos to spice it up but you still definitely need to season this otherwise fun twist on beef stew! Looking forward to playing with this recipe! Read More

This was delicious. Easy and quick. Based on the other reviews I did add a few seasonings to the meat. Would definitely make it again. Hubby loved it. Read More
