lean ground beef
day-old white bread, torn into small pieces
egg, lightly beaten
wheat-based liquid seasoning (such as Maggi® Seasoning)
ground black pepper
2 1/4 cups
finely chopped onion
beef bouillon granules
ground black pepper
1 (4.5 ounce) can
sliced mushrooms, drained
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
chopped fresh parsley
paprika, or to taste
We use frozen meatballs and cook on high in the Crock-Pot for 2 hrs. Excellent! :-)
For the meatballs, I used day-old whole wheat bread and omitted the Maggi seasoning (only because I didn't have it). For the "gravy", I didn't have bouillion granules so I used Campbell's beef broth and I added a mess of fresh garlic as well as fresh baby bella mushrooms instead of canned and I sauteed them with the onions with a little butter before I added the gravy ingredients. The meatballs turned out tender and juicy, which we all agreed was very nice. I'm glad I omitted the Maggi seasoning because I think if I hadn't, this dish would have been way too salty. I think the addition of the full cup of cornstarch was overkill. Next time I make this, I'll cut it back to a tablespoon or so. The gravy was way too thick. Using condensed cream of mushroom soup is a great thickener, all that cornstarch is unnecessary. My husband and I also thought there was a little too much sour cream. I think cut it in half and it would be just right. I think using fresh ingredients and canned beef broth was a great step for this dish. Like I said, if I hadn't had to make a last minute substitution, it would have been WAY too salty. I'll make this again, with my changes. NOTE: I stand by my review only because I think had I not made the changes I did, it would not have been edible. You can sub low-sodium products when necessary but this recipe is full of them.
I am the submitter of this recipe. I'm not sure if I forgot to print it or if it was omitted - but I do use low-sodium products when making this recipe. Hope this helps!
I halved the recipe and added 3 cloves of minced garlic. I also omitted the seasoning salt in the meatballs as recommended by many other reviews. I also used 6 oz of fresh sliced mushroom. While this recipe has the taste of a typical hamburger stroganoff, I found it didn't own the depth of flavors that my favorite stroganoff by Ken in CA created. That being said, it proves to be "kid friendly". I also didn't care for the onions and mushrooms texture since they weren't sauteed first. The onions were still a bit crunchy. Thanks for sharing.
awesome dish. My grandsons age 18 and 22 loved it. We ate it over hot buttered noodles!! Thanks, Wonderful and simple to make
A bit on the salty side. Will make again, but will probably use low sodium beef broth instead of the beef granules to see if it is any less salty.
Good but a little salty!
