  • “Great meal to fix when you can’t be there to tend the pot.Instead of cooking in crockpot, I put in covered casserole dish and baked at 350° for about an hour (while I was running kiddies to soccer practice).Came home, cooked the noodles and we ate!”

  • “wonderful, simply wonderful!”

  • “Very good and easy to make.”

  • “This is a really good recipe! I love do ahead recipes.Christine you are right it is wonderful.I served it with crusty bread and a green salad and it was enjoyed by all”

  • “Great tasting, easy to make and not expensive – good, quick family meal.”

  • “So easy even “I” could make it! This stuff is great! Didn’t even need the noodles… ate it straight.”

  • “This is similar to one I prepare only I use 1lb prepackaged swedish meatballs,add 1/4tsp nutmeg + 2 tbsps tomato paste to flour and sour cream.Just like the original,no hassle,company presentable and tastes wonderful!”

  • “Awesome recipe!This is a staple in our household.My children are the world’s pickiest eaters but they eat it all,no leftovers.”

  • “I love this recipe. I love pasta but I get bored with tomato based sauces. This is such a nice change. I usually make it without sour cream as that is not something I buy regularly and I still find it delicious.”

  • “This was really tastey!!!I did substitute some fresh mushrooms (sauteed in butter first) for the canned. I also used one can of beef broth (which is more than 1 C., but I was using more beef) I did use sour cream, but only about 1/3 C., and we all really enjoyed this recipe. I would definitely make it again, for a quick meal.ThanksPaulette”

  • “This recipe is easy to prepare, good basic ingredients and I served it over rice. I will definately make again, but we actually thought it was much tastier before adding the flour and sour cream which I will leave out for my family the next time I make it.I may add in carrot in small slices and some peeled potatoes cut into chunks – making a ground beef stew.This recipe will allow great variations which I love. Thanks for posting.”

  • “This is what my mom used to make when I was a little girl! I was so grateful to find it again. She (and I) used beef tips cut into small pieces, and the crockpot makes it so tender! To cook a little faster, try cooking on HIGH for 2 hours, LOW for 2 hours, add the sour cream, and then cook on LOW for an additional 1 hour. I have found that cooking on HIGH for 3 hours doesn’t make the meat as tender, but cooking this way only takes 5 hours and is great to plug in in the morning to have ready by lunch! Yum!!! (Also — you can use ketchup instead of tomato paste.)”

  • “I look forward to having this for a stress-free dinner tomorrow – all I have to do is make a batch of rice and add the sour cream/flour mixture.My dad wanted to make a sandwich with it even before it got out of the frying pan!”

  • “I go with the flow on this one.I liked it as well.Easy and tasty.I served this over curly pasta.Was really good!!”

  • “Excellent meal! Easy to make. I also baked it for an hour @ 350 and it turned out great. One kid loved it and the really picky one hated it. What are you going to do?:)”

  • “Ok. I’m a dunce. I don’t know how it the world I didn’t know this was a crockpot recipe. I even thought I read the directions ahead of time. Guess not. Anyhow, I settled for simmering about 20 minutes and ran with it. It was pretty good, and everyone ate it, even the pickies. I think it would be better and easier in the crockpot, so I plan on making it correctly next time.”

  • “EXCELLENT recipe! Followed the recipe exactly except left out the tomato paste/ketchup and instead of canned mushrooms, I diced up 8 de-stemmed baby Bellas.I used Breakstone’s fat-free cream cheese.Served over whole grain pasta and everyone LOVED.Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Very good. I cooked it a little too long but once I added the sour cream it came back to life. I served it over noodles. I will make this again.”
