Haven't made the recipe yet but sounds yummy! Here is my fix for the tomato paste left overs in the can. I put it in a zip-lock freezer baggie and flatten it out to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Throw in the freezer and just break some off when needed and return rest to freezer. Keeps for at least 6 months, is cheaper than tubes and I think fresher too.

Thank you Sue for sharing your recipe! We really enjoyed it and I will be making it often. This is a quick, easy recipe. We do not like onion or garlic, I added diced celery

This dish is delicious made exactly as recipe states. I noticed some thought ‘sauce’ too thick. Stovetop preparation would cook faster so moisture would be lost there, as would omitting the mushrooms or onion, as they bring moisture to the recipe. Another comment about tomato paste...buy the excellent tomato paste which comes in a tube, (like toothpaste). It is thick and rich and delicious, PLUS, if you don’t use it all, just screw the top back on and keep in fridge. It lasts a long time and is so easy to use. Spinach noodles are delicious with this recipe.

I have an allergy to MSG which is in canned beef consomme. Can I use boxed beef stock instead?

I cut this in half for me and my husband to use up the extra 1/2 can of consomme I had. Because I omitted the mushrooms, I added in some chopped green pepper as an extra veggie. I too did it all on the stove and didn't use the slow cooker. I made the beef as written, drained it and put it on a plate. Added the butter, cooked the onion and green pepper until they were starting to get tender, then added in the garlic. I put the beef back in, added in the whisked sauce, covered it and put it on low while my noodles cooked. After they were done, I added in the sour cream and cooked until heated through.I found it to be quite yummy and reminded me a bit of Swedish meatballs. I thought the "sauce" was just a tad too thick, so next time I'll add in even more consomme or add in some beef broth. Overall a good recipe and pretty easy too!

This recipe was a hit with my family! I'm allergic to mushrooms, but I just left those out and it was still amazing.

Great recipe! As other reviewers commented, I cooked mine on the stovetop, too. I didn't have beef consomm?, so used a can of French onion soup that I had on hand. The mixture got really thick, so I added about a half cup of water to thin it out. Great way to use up some browned ground beef and mushrooms I had on hand Quick and easy, too!

This recipe is awesome....so easy and delicious! My husband said, "Do NOT lose this recipe!"

Actually, this is a good recipe. I gave it four stars because the slow cooker is not necessary. Most of the ingredients are pre-cooked, so just leave everything in the pan and finish it there. Use less consomme at first until you see how thick it is, then add more as necessary. Oh--if you don't want to open a can of tomato paste, use catsup instead.

This came together easy but the flavors weren't for us
