The purpose of this Instructable is to show you how to create an easy meal that anyone can make. There are a ton of beef stew recipes out there, but this one is different because it is designed for a college student. In college it can be difficult to eat full nutritious meals. This recipe requires only a short prep time, and you can simply turn it on in the morning and come home to a fully prepared meal.

Technical Ability: No experience required
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours

Step 1: What you will need!


1 Medium Onion
1lb Stew Meat
4 Medium Red Potatoes
1 Cup of Carrots
1 Can Cambell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Can Cambell's Tomato Soup
Sea Salt Grinder
Peppercorn Grinder

1 Potato Peeler
1 Butcher's Knife
1 Rubber Scraper
Crock Pot
Cutting Board
Measuring Cups
Idk if this goes with your quick theme but if you brown the meat (1st step in the crockpot?) and the onions(aromatics) together it should be more flavorful. <br> <br>Otherwise awesome recipe and pictures :)
I've made this recipe about a dozen times using variations of a minor sort - cut up chuck steak, stewing beef or cut-up bottom round, a tablespoon of soy, a tablespoon of Worcestershire not all at the same time of course - and it's always good. <br><br>My more or less settled recipe includes celery, onion, carrots and a couple of teaspoons of beef base or a couple of bullion cubes. I tried potatoes once but they cooked to mush but I might try red skins. Perhaps they'll hold together.<br><br>Got a pot going now for dinner.
I skip scraping of the soup cans, just add a little water to each of them, swish it around &amp; pour them into the pot! I also add a can of whole kernal corn. Bon Appetit!
Fantastic! Looking forward to more crock pot recipes :D
Love the plentiful photos.
