Slow Cooker Meatball And Dumpling Stew is a tasty slow cooker meatball soup, packed with vegetables and homemade meatballs.

  • For Soup
  • 1 package dehydrated onion soup mix
  • 6 cups hot water
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 2 to 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 pound (or 1 can) green beans
  • 1 can sliced tomatoes, or 1 medium sliced fresh tomato
  • 1 cup Bisquick (or similar biscuit mix)
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • For Meatballs
  • 1 pound hamburger or ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk

For Meatballs:

  1. Mix ground beef, egg, chopped onion, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, salt and milk together.
  2. Shape mixture into 1 to 1-1/2-inch balls.
  3. Heat salad oil in a large skillet. Cook meatballs over medium heat until brown--about 20 minutes.
  4. Drain off excess fat (save a little for the slow cooker, if you like).


For Soup:

  1. Place cream of celery soup and dried onion soup mix in slow cooker.
  2. Cover with about 1/2 of the hot water and stir until mixed, then add the remaining water.
  3. Add carrots, green beans, and tomatoes & stir just until mixed.
  4. Add meatballs, cover, and cook on low heat about 3 1/2 hours.
  5. Turn slow cooker heat to high. In a small bowl, combine biscuit mix with parsley.
  6. Stir in enough water (or milk) with fork until you have a stiff dough.
  7. Drop dumpling mixture into slow cooker with a teaspoon.
  8. Cover and cook on high for about 30 minutes.

woodstock: I have updated the recipe. I'm sorry for the confusion. I hope this helps! Thanks! Blair, editor for

I am confused about this recipe. Where do the meatballs come from? Do you make them fresh? Do you fry them before putting in Slow Cooker? Do you put them uncooked into the slow cooker? This recipe needs some tweaking before it is shown again. Kindly advise Thanks
