In A Food Mood: Soup Is Good Food

Here's a fast beef stew you can make in the crockpot.

2 packages of frozen vegetables for stew
1.5 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can tomato soup
1 envelope onion soup mix

Place veggies in slow cooker. Brown beef in oil on all sides in skillet. Add meat to slow cooker. Combine soups and mix and pour over top. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or until beef is tender. Remember that the longer the cooking time, the more tender the beef will get because you are breaking down the connective tissue that makes the beef tough. So if you like meat you can cut with a fork (I do!) don't skimp on your cooking time.
Pin It!

Thanks for sending these. I am on a mission this year to stop grabbing convenience foods at the store and begin to feed my family in a better way.
