8 steps to the garbage disposal

The following is the absolute fastest slow-cooker recipe I’ve ever made in 8 easy steps.

1.  Brown stew meat, add to crock pot

2.  Add 2 cans condensed cream soup

3.  Add 1 cup sour cream

4.  Add one package dried soup mix

5.  1/2 cup water

6.  Stir all together and taste

7.  Send gag-reflex through the roof

8.  Empty everything into strainer to rescue the meat for another meal.

Disclaimer:  For all of you who know me by now, I’m as frugal as they come.  I am not a wasteful person.  In our nearly 30 years of marriage, I have never made anything so bad that I knew we couldn’t at least eat it and move on.  The meat and sour cream were fresh, so I know it wasn’t anything spoiled.  Seriously, it was that bad!  (Ok, I’ll admit to a little drama on #7.)

Oh well, on to another recipe!  Ever have one of those meals? 

Recently edited:  I think I’ve figured out that the dried soup mix may have been rancid.

It’s All Leftovers Tonight Good!




  1. It doesn't sound that bad - I'll take your word for it!

  2. I thought it sounded really good!

    And I was all set for a quick and easy crock pot meal.

    But that thing about gag reflexing through the roof is kinda discouraging me!

  3. It sounds like a regular recipe, so the dry mix must have been bad. I hate when that happens!

    I downloaded the Slow Cooker recipe book from Econobusters. All the meals are "Make for $7 or less". You might want to grab it.

  4. It was sounding good to me. I've fixed a slow cook roast with the dry soup mix before and ours was very good. Glad you saved the meat.....frugal me would have done the same thing!!!

  5. Really??? I have made this recipe several times and it is one of our favorites!!! I have even used slight veriations to it like adding green peppers.

  6. i just can't imagine this sorrid tale

  7. How said - I'm sure it was smelling really good all day - what a disappointment!

  8. I hate it when meals turn out bad.
    It sounded good though!

  9. Brenda, I have made this minus the sour cream and we love it! The sour cream would have bothered me--I never have used that in it. Try it again, Brenda. It's really quite good.

  10. That was hilarious. It was sounding like something I would like until the end.

  11. So funny! I once tried to make a sweet and sour pork dish. Thought it would taste just like the dish from our local Chinese resturant. NOT! It was terrible! I poured it all out and then we went out to eat!

  12. yep, I've had those with almost the same result, I strained/rinsed the meat off and started over. Glad I'm not the only one.

  13. I was thinking as I was reading your recipe...that actually sounds really good. Then I read your update. That certainly would do it. Maybe you could give it another try...and let us know...LOL
