In a crock pot, mix the following:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can consommé beef soup
1 envelope onion soup mix (Onion Soup Mix, 5T = 1 package)
1 can water
2 lbs. ground beef
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk, maybe a little less.
Mix it together with your hands, really well. Form into balls, roll in flour, brown well and drain.
Add to the soup mixture. Cook on low, 6-8 hours. Serve with mashed potatoes.
This is the same soup base that is used for Beef Stew. The meatballs freeze really well too. After browning the meatballs, let them cool and then freeze them. You don't even need to thaw them before putting them in the soup base.
If you don't want to spend the time or mess to brown the meatballs, place the meatballs on a jelly roll pan and bake them at 350 for about 25 minutes. Nice and easy and a lot less mess.
