I made this for dinner tonight. I had a package of frozen turkley meatballs and added fresh potatoes, celery, onion and I added a can of mixed vegetables. It turned out very good. The whole pot was gone in one night and my family doesnt like traditional beef stew. Will add this to my recipe box.
Makes a very yummy stew on cold winter days. I made a few changes however. I halved the recipe for my family and used only 1/2 pound of ground beef. I also did not cook them in oil beforehand. I changed the tomato soup to a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and the beef broth to 2 cups. I also added some water to balance things as well as 1/2 cup uncooked medium shell pasta. I eliminated the carrots and used dried parsley, and used about 6 medium onions cut into chunks. Although I did change it a lot, it was a very good recipe and the soup pot was thoroughly cleaned out by the end of the meal!
This was a very good stew. I did not use anything from a can and it was very good. I put it over brown rice and that made an amazing evening meal.
Forgot to mention this in previous comment. Rather than cooking meatballs on stovetop, bake them in an 11x7" dish at 350 degree for +/- 15 minutes. They'll turn out great, without your having to stand over stove.
I've made this delicious stew for a few years now. Originally found recipe in TOH's softcover Best Ground Beef Recipes at grocery check-out. Recipe looked so appealing, just knew I had to have it. I add 2 jars whole onions, extra carrots/potatoes so it's chunkier. Serve with fresh homemade rolls for a hearty meal.
