Hi there! The stew turned out really well and your suggestion about thawing the meatballs first then adding them for an hour worked perfectly. As I said, it was a clear the fridge dinner . . . I used equal parts of sweet potatoes, butternut squash and turnip, added in a couple of coarsely chopped onions, a parsnip and some carrots. To that I added some dried garlic seasoning, a little worcestershire sauce, a box of sodium-reduced beef broth and a can of reduced fat mushroon soup. Cooked all that for several hours then added the thawed meatballs. After an hour, I thickened the sauce a little, and that's it! I'm lazy when it comes to the crockpot - I love it but really enjoy the one step, no previous prep variety! Thanks for your help and hope you enjoy the recipe (such as it is!).

For sure, as long as it turns out! It's one of those "clear the fridge" things!

Any chance you'll share the recipes? I love root veggies AND meatballs!

Thanks so much for the tip . . . that was my gut feeling too. If it works (or doesn't!) I'll let you know.

That stew sounds delicious!

I'd thaw them first (in the microwave if necessary), then add them about an hour before the end of the cooking time with the pot set on "high."

I'm making a stew with tons of root veggies and am thinking of adding frozen meatballs just for a change. Can anyone tell me when in the process to add them? I've never used them in my crockpot before. Thanks in advance for suggestions!
