Made this stew this week. We enjoyed it very much and leftovers also. I used my own recipe for the meatballs. Added about 1 T. tomato paste in the stew and used an onion chopped for the jar of onions as that is what I had.Had some leftover peas so dumped those in also.... It is a keeper... Can't go wrong with meatballs....
I used mini shell pasta instead of the potatoes and it was great! Very comforting soup!
I simmer my meatballs in a bouillon broth (3 cups water; 2 chipotle bouillon cubes; 1 beef bouillon cube) and add them and the broth to the slow cooker with the veggies and a large jar of garlic-lime salsa (Great Value brand from Wal-Mart), which takes the place of the canned broth and soup. We sometimes add cilantro instead of parsley.
Same basic recipe, just changed a bit to suit our tastes.
A do-over at our house. I used about 1/2 pkg of frozen meatballs instead of preparing them. Based upon other reviews, I used 2 8 oz cans of tomato sauce and only 1 can of beef broth and added chopped onions to the veggies (no jarred on hand). The next time we make it, we are going to add frozen peas -- for color -- and Cajun spice for more seasoning. On a cold rainy, California night, it certainly hit the spot!
Made this tonight for dinner to take away the winter chills. Everyone loved it - a keeper. Couldn't find a jar of onions or frozen pearl onions at the store, so I just used some small onions from the garden cut into quarters. Everyone added salt & pepper to taste and loved it.
