Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef, lightly browned and drained
2 large potatoes, sliced
3 carrots, sliced
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen peas, partially thawed
3 medium onions, sliced
2 stalks of celery sliced
1 can (approx 10-oz) tomato soup
1 soup can of water

In the crockpot or slow cooker layer the potatoes, carrots, peas, onions and celery, in that order.  Lightly season each layer with salt and pepper as desired.  Layer the browned beef over the celery.  In a bowl, mix the soup and water together with a whisk until smooth.  Pour the soup mixture over the ground beef.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting 6 to 8 hours or on the high setting 3 to 4 hours.  Stir occasionally.
