This here is one of those recipes I never EVER would have tried if I glanced at the recipe card instead of tasting it firsthand.
My mother-in-law made it and it was so delicious I asked for the recipe...then she gave it to me and I about had a heart attack.
SURELY, it COULDN'T be that simple. SURELY-a recipe like that couldn't produce the wonderfully melded stew I was consuming at present. But it could! And DOES!
2-3 large sized potatoes, sliced
2-3 medium carrots, sliced
1 can of peas, drained (or frozen-like I use)
3 medium onions, sliced
1 1/2 pounds ground beef, browned
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 10 ounce can tomato soup
1 10 ounce can water
Brown the beef while you are slicing the veggies. Then layer first six ingredients in order listed into your handy dandy crockpot.
Mix a can of tomato soup and a can of water and POUR over everything. Season with salt and pepper if you like.
THEN~ the hard part. Turn the crockpot on low and leave it alone. For 6-8 hours. (Or turn it on HIGH for 2-4)
What a simple meal! And very delicious. But don't take MY word for it...
