Come home to warm comfort food! This is based on my mom’s wonderful recipe, though I tweaked it for the slow cooker. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan to each bowl for a nice finishing touch. —Marcella West, Washburn, Illinois

This was so easy and so delicious. I put in two cans of beef consume and one cup water instead of three cups water. Also, my husband and kids all liked it too. I added mushrooms, extra carrots and celery. Extra cornstarch was needed as well. I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

I'm not a very experienced cook, but it was easy enough for me to make & it turned out delicious. It has a great "mom's home cooking" flavor. I didn't have celery, so I substituted zucchini that I put in at the same time as the peas. This is a very good recipe!

A wonderful recipe. I followed the recipe completely but had trouble thickening it for some reason. Just added a bit of flour in a bit of water and that did it. Great! Will make again for sure!
