I love to use my crockpot, it makes cozy dinners in the winter, and in the summer I can use it instead of my oven to keep my kitchen cooler. One of the easiest, heartiest meal I make with my crockpot is what I call crockpot stew. I never brown the meat first, just toss everything in the pot and 6-8 hours later a hearty, delicious dinner is ready to eat. Its one of Pa Lloyd’s favorites I hope you enjoy it too.
Crockpot Beef Stew
1 lb. beef stew meat
1 medium onion chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
10 oz. frozen peas or 1/2 of a 16 oz. bag
3 medium peeled cubed potatoes
1 can tomato soup undiluted
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 bay leaf, optional
Place all ingredients in the crock pot pouring the soup on last. Give it a stir, then cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours. The tomato soup won’t look like tomato soup when its done. It will look more like gravy. Don’t add water, it will be plenty juicy from the veggies and soup.
It sounds like our temperatures will be dropping at the end of the week, this dish should hit the spot!
Have a good week!
