Carnation® Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Loved It!. I used 1/4 tsp nutmeg instead of dill added about 1 tbsp of vermouth (better than wine) and 1 tsp of worchestershire. I also used premade italian meatballs from Schwans and made the sauce in a pan. Then put the meatballs down in the crockpot and added the sauce and let it cook on low for about 2 hours. It was ready for us to eat when we were ready. Husband loved it. Served it with egg noodles the first night and the wonderful leftovers with angel hair. Yum Yum!!!!!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Really Great with the changes I made. HUBBY LOVED IT!!! I too cooked in a skillet. The comments about being bland got me, so I spinkled the chicken with paprika, salt & pepper before cooking - I used lemon juice from a squeezable lemon. I only did 2 breasts but made the amount of gravy called for in recipe and there was plenty. I added chopped onions to sautee just before chicken was done. When Chicken was done I removed it and made gravy according to recipe with the exception of the added onions, I also added 1 good tsp. majoram, 1/2 tsp creole seasoning and I used 3/4 cup beef broth instead of chicken broth, 1/4 cup dry vermouth (better to cook with than wine), when thickened I returned chick to skillet and gently simmered about 10 min. waiting for the steamed asparagus to get ready. OH-LA-LA!!!!!!!

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
Been making this for years. Started using a rump roast and discovered it can be used with about any beef. When I use round steak I call it Smothered Steak. Instead of water I use 7Up, Sprite, Tonic, Club Soda or even beer. The carbonation will tenderize the meat even more. I add fresh mushrooms about 2 hrs before cooking is complete.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I've been making this recipe for 15+ years. It is great and easy. It's like a dump roast. I put a rump roast in crockpot, spread on mushroom soup, then sprinkle on dry onion soup (do not stir) then instead of water I use Sprite or 7-Up. When I didn't have Sprite or 7-Up I've used beer or tonic water (any clear carbonated drink will work) I also use this recipe for beef tips and round steak for a great smothered steak. I have served at many of dinner parties as any of the above.
