My mom has a great stew recipe that I love. I have shared it in my cookbook and it is a family favorite. I have yet to find a recipe that I like as much as hers. However, this 5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Stew is close! It is good and also so easy. This stew is flavorful and the beef is amazingly tender.
I am a Canbassador for Cans Get You Cooking and this is a perfect “Cantry” recipe. Two of the 5 ingredients are canned soups! It uses condensed cream of mushroom and tomato soup. I love to keep a well stocked “Cantry” to make recipes. I like to keep items like canned soups, tomatoes, beans, fruit, and vegetables on hand. It makes it so easy as a busy mom to get dinner on the table and this five ingredient slow cooker stew is a cinch!
It starts with adding frozen stew vegetables in to bottom of your slow cooker. Then you top it with stew meat. In a bowl, you combine to two canned soups with a package of dry onion soup mix. Finally, pour this mixture over the stew meat. This cooks for 6-8 hours on low. That’s it!
