Many years ago, the Farm Journal published a recipe that became the "jumping-off point" for my version. It's as colorful as it is delicious. I often serve it over wide egg noodles or atop steamed rice—but it's also good just as it is.—Savilla Zook, Seabrook, Maryland.

"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 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.
Good stuff!"

"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."
