This recipe calls for beef stew meat and maybe at regular grocery stores that means that the meat is prepackaged into chopped up pieces? (If anyone knows, leave a comment please!) At the commissary on the air force base where I regularly shop for groceries, there's no such thing as beef stew meat so I had to buy 2lbs of meat and try to cut it into small pieces. I gave up after cutting up a pound! It's hard to cut up raw meat. I liked this recipe a lot and it's not hard to make at all. If you use a 6 qt crockpot you can actually cut the cooking time in half. It makes 8 servings.
2 pounds beef stew meat1 cup chopped onion
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of golden mushroom soup
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of onion soup (I couldn't find this soup so I used an additional can of cream of mushroom soup)
1 jar (6 ounces) Green Giant® sliced mushrooms, drained (I used two 4 oz cans)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1 container (8 ounces) sour cream
6 cups hot cooked noodles or rice
