anyone have any ideas or recipes for fairly easy replacements?
After the meat is browned I think you could make a good dark roux and add some boiling water or stock to make a rich gravy instead of using the soup.

It does look fantastic, that plate with the mashed potatoes and crater gravy brings back memories of dinner in America!

It brings a low sodium tear to my eye!

Looks to me like you added mushrooms and maybe some other stuff. What mods did you make to the original recipe?
The only mods I made were using up three mushrooms and a quarter onion I had in the fridge.

Tom, you could always just cook it in water


I'm sure there must be a healthy concentrated soup substitute somewhere. The simplicity of this deserves a once a year splurge though. If you ever noticed, most of Ol-Blue's recipes involve shortcuts because they are all well suited for camping.

Add some low sodium chicken broth or water and sour cream.
That sounds like it would be good substitutes for the canned and packaged soups.

I think white. I'm pretty sure it's simply dried onion and bullion of some sorts... plus the usual three or four multi-syllable scientific ingredients, lol. It's for making instant soup, but it seems people use it more for dips, or to mix into ground beef, or to flavor something up like this recipe.
You could probably open your cupboard and make a good substitute.

I've got both white and brown onion soup mix made by Royco. I'll try the white then. Thanks
