Good Ol' Crock Pot Stew

Thank you Debbie for hosting Crock Pot Wednesdays. It makes me cook and have lots to put in the freezer for this winter. I normally don't eat red meat anymore but I made an exception for this one time. Visit everyone's recipes on Debbie's blog at: http://diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com/

What could be better on a cool, rainy fall night than good ol' beef stew in the crock pot!!!

Here's the recipe I used. (Click to enlarge)

1 1/2 lbs of stew meat. (I used chuck) Cut up onions, potatoes, carrots and celery.

Mix one can of tomato soup with 1 1/2 soup cans of water in a separate bowl.

Sprinkle the tapioca, sugar, salt and pepper over the top.

Pour the tomato soup mixture over the top. Don't stir. I always start my crock pot on hi for 15 minutes then switch it to low.

7 hours later on low . . . looks like it's done.

Mmmmm, very tasty recipe. Turned out delicious.

So there you have it. A nice warm-me-up dinner for a cool fall or winter evening, complete with biscuits (and a little wine!)
My sister made me that beautiful fall card. If you click the photo, you can read the verse.
Have a great Wednesday. I'll be babysitting!
