Mom’s Stew


1 can minestrone soup

1 can tomato soup

1 can water

1 to 1 1/2 pounds stew meat

1 onion, chopped

3-4 carrots, thickly sliced

3-4 potatoes, cut into chunks

Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in a crockpot. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high 4-5 hours. Serves 4-6.

Trade Secrets: This makes a VERY hearty and thick stew. If you want it a bit “soupier” add another can of water or a cup of beef broth or stock. Also, I use red potatoes and leave the skin on.
