I have always turned up my nose at stew, but after
the pickiest sister Candice stamped it with her approval, I thought I'd better try it! This recipe comes from our sister-in-law, Tif, and is quick and easy and, best of all, a crock-pot recipe. My fave!
(Not my picture. Image from here. I'll be honest...mine didn't look very appetizing (the color of the broth turned me off), so I opted for this image instead).
1 lb. stew meat
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can of corn--with the juice
3-4 potatoes, peeled, washed, and chunked
1 C. diced carrots
1 can (use one of the cream cans) filled with water.
Dehydrated or minced onion to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything in the crock-pot and cook on low all day. About 5 minutes before we ate, I threw in a cup or so of frozen peas (I didn't want them to get soggy from cooking all day). The stew was really hearty and filling and a perfect meal for a chilly day!
