It seems like our Winter is never ending. We currently have at least two feet of snow on the ground, and we continue to hit records for low temperatures, similar to much of the country. Thank goodness for warm – stick to your bones – comfort food! There just isn’t anything like a good hearty soup or stew to warm you up.

I have made plenty of stews during my many years in the kitchen, but had never thought to add Meatballs…this was definitely a new adventure. And I am happy to say, it was a grand adventure!

Fresh vegetables definitely make all the difference, the flavors from “real” food is unmatched.  Along with a match of Homemade Meatballs, this Stew was a favorite with our family!

  1. This turned out amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  2. I’m going to try this today but where’s the recipe for the cornbread?

  3. Hi~ I’m definitely going to try this recipe! It looks so good!

    Just a few questions:
    1, By “combine and cook meatballs”- you mean to combine the ingredients to make the meatballs mentioned in your “Homemade Meatballs” recipe, right?

    2. Do we really need to cook the meatballs thoroughly when making them? Since they are gonna be cooked again here either on stovetop or slow cooker, maybe we could just quickly brown them in the skillet and skip the oven, and instead we just transfer them into the stew with the rest of the veggies.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    • Hi Jessy, yes to combine and cook the meatballs. You can certainly just brown them since you are cooking in the slow cooker. The original recipe called for frozen meatballs, but we made our own. That’s why we cooked them all the way through before putting them in the slow cooker.
      Happy Cooking!

  4. Do you know how well this would freeze? I’m worried about the potatoes. I’ve frozen soups with potatoes in before and after reheating it the potatoes have an odd taste to them…

  5. carol southerland says:

    How much time should be added for frozen meatballs? 2 hours?

    • Hi Carol, you can just add the frozen meatballs like you would fresh, they will cook while the vegetables are cooking.
      Happy Cooking!

  6. Thanks for posting this recipe…I know it is summer now, but I will be crock potting this tomorrow! I am using frozen peas/carrots and frozen diced home fries for the potatoes. Also will be making my meatballs…sounded too yummy to wait.
