lean ground beef
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed tomato soup
1 (10.5 ounce) can
condensed French onion soup
packed brown sugar
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.
Like another reviewer I used the powdered onion soup mix instead of canned. I also ommited the brown sugar, and put in a dash of hot sauce instead. Turned out great, my husband liked it better than Manwich.
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.
This was super easy and mighty tasty. The only thing I will do differently next time is NOT use the Lipton onion soup mix that others recommended (instead of the canned) and follow the recipe EXACTLY. Not sure where the taste buds are of the instant soup fans or why I deviated when I had the canned variety in the pantry, but do yourself a favor and follow this AS WRITTEN for an "out of the park" easy meal.
This was a great recipe. I omitted the extra water, and used an undrained 10oz can of diced tomatoes instead. Also, I didn't have canned onion soup, so I made up 1/2 a pack of onion soup mix, using half the correct amount of water, so it would be concentrated. Myself and the kids loved it, husband thought is was way too sweet, thus the 4 stars. I took a picture and submitted it, so that's what it looks like with the tomatoes.
This is GREAT!! Only thing I did different was also added a dry packet of french onion soup mix (both cans of soup as instructed AND the packet). and barely used any water so it thickened perfecty! you can always add a little water as it simmers if it needs. It gets even better the next day - flavors really soak in overnight. GREAT MEAL!!! it freezes well too
The second time I made this I added some hot sauce and it really gave it a kick that my entire family enjoyed.
