Simple Monday Meal: Crockpot Beef Stew

IMG_7157Happy Monday Everyone!!

I don’t know about you… but for me Monday’s always call for a quick and easy meal 🙂

I promised a while ago to share some of my favorite crockpot recipes. So here is the first one!

First of all, I LOVE using the crockpot because you literally throw all the ingredients in, go to work, come home, and you’re dinner is all ready for you to eat! So simple!

This recipe is one I learned from my mom, and it is one of may favorite meals to make because it is SO easy and it turns out great every time.

Here is what you need:

  • stewing beef (one regular package)
  • 1 can of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • Potatoes (I like to use 1 bag of the baby potatoes)
  • Whatever veggies you would like in your stew (I like onions, carrots, mushrooms, celery)
  • Italian seasoning

Now to make it: Chop up your veggies however you like them, big chunks, little chunks, whichever.

Then throw everything into your crockpot, the canned items, your veggies, your meat, a bunch of Italian seasoning. Done!!

I usually turn in on low because I’m gone for 8 hours while it cooks, but if you wanted to make this on the weekend, it should work to turn it on high and it should be done in 4ish hours.

… And since this meal is super easy, I like to make scones/biscuits with it!

It makes the meal feel extra ‘fall-ish’ 🙂
