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!
It was okay, however, way too much ketchup, it tasted like meat with ketchup smothered all over it, my kids liked it but the adults were VERY disappointed.
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.
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. My whole family thought this was delicious. I made a double recipe, using 1 can condensed french onion soup, 1/2 can water, and 2 8-oz cans of tomato sauce in place of the ketchup, tomato juice, and onion soup mix. I let it bake for 1-1/2 hours and the meat was very tender with a nice thick sauce. Thanks for sharing Angie.
What an awesome recipe! I sort of cheated a bit though. I put the green peppers, onions, mushrooms, celery, tomatoe juice, ketchup, dry onion soup mix all in a blender and made a puree out of it. (If the kids would have seen all of those veggies, they would have instantly hated it!) The kids loved it. I even made sure that they really liked it before I told them what was in it. My 7 year old got THIRDS!! And that's very odd for him!! Thank you so much!!~
Good flavor and super easy to make! I thought the sauce was a bit sweet for my taste so I might cut down the ketchup next time but this is a definate keeper! Also extra mushrooms would be great too the next time! Thanks so much Angie for posting this and THANK YOU Granny for such a great recipe!!!
Have made this several times and each time my husband raves about how good it is and how much he enjoys it. I have, however, changed the method ever so slightly, in that I dump all the veggies back in the pan with a tad bit more olive oil and saute till slightly browned. I then dump them all atop the meat and sprinkle with the soup mix and oergano. I then mix the juice and ketchup and pour over all. Cover and bake for 1 hour , checking about 1/2 way through to make sure there is enough liquid. Is wonderful with baked patatoes that were put in the oven at the start.
