I loved this recipe! I made some changes, though. I didn't have green peppers, so used crinkle cut sliced carrots, instead. Also, I didn't chop vegetables, but sliced onions into rings. I omitted the ketchup, and used a can of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, instead, and mixed those with the instant onion soup, before pouring on top of vegetables and meat. Then, I poured about a cup of water over all. I served with mashed potatoes, using the sauce as a gravy. It was absolutely delicious!


Very good and very easy to make. After I started, I realized I didn't have any tomato juice, so I used a can of tomato soup and 1/2 soup can of water. I also had some grape tomatoes on hand. I cut them in half and added them with the other vegetables. It was delicious.


This recipe is excellent. I used the original recipe as a base and cooked it in a large crock pot. Hubby and children loved it. The recipe was doubled. I used 2 - 12 oz cans of V8 veggie juice instead of tomato juice since that is what I had on hand. Cut the ketchup to about 3/4 cup and added 1 can of diced tomato. Sauteed fresh mushrooms in Worchestshire sauce with hunks of celery stalks and garlic powder that I put on the bottom of the crock pot. I did not add additional salt or oregano nor green peppers. There is already enough salt in the juice and diced tomatos. I did use dried basil in place of the oregano and added a couple of bay leaves. With doubling the recipe, I do believe that 1 envelope of beefy onion soup mix is plenty. We served this wonderful dish over homemade mashed potatoes along with a couple of other side items. Just great comfort food.
