"Rather upset...the receipe in the slowcooker receipe says to add the next five ingredients to the crockpot and cook...then says to mix cornstarch and wine or broth...I just added the five and then realized it didn't sound right. I'm not a super cook so I didn't catch it first. Disappointed because its probably not going to come out right."

"Was a quick easy recipe but my wife and I did not care for the flavor. Was OK but not good enough to make again."

"This is an excellent recipe and will certainly make it again. Did change a couple things. decreased pepper to 1/2 tsp. and added about 1 cup chicken broth in crock pot as it seemed too dry with just the 1 can cream of mushroom soup, etc. Turned out wonderful! My husband loved it."

"This is one of my family's FAVORITE recipes! My husband and four year old even eat the vegetables! It is really good on a cold day and I reccommend serving it with some nice fresh baked rolls."

"This has way too much pepper. Would definitely make this again but with a lot less pepper."
