This was as good as others said it was. The only problem is that I found it to be a little more runny than I would have liked, even after simmering for a few hours. I remied this by adding 1/8 cup or so of flour. Next time I'll cut down on the water. Also, after I browned the ground beef and added the ingredients, I put it in the crock pot to simmer for several hours.



I didn't have any French onion soup, so I substituted a package of dry onion soup mix. It was really good. It tastes like Manwich only better because it's home-made!



This was very easy, and since it was a LOT of beef and I didn't want to halve it and waste the soups, I did as another reviewer suggested and froze the leftovers for a quick dinner later. I absolutely loved this. These smelled wonderful, and tasted like the sloppy joes I used to eat at the school cafeteria as a kid that I loved soooooo much. My husband thought they were a little too sweet (I disagree) which is why this gets only 4 stars instead of 5s. Kids are sure to love this as well. I did also add about 1/4 tsp of garlic powder.
