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.

1/2 lb beef stew meat*
1 can (14.5-oz) stewed tomatoes
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1 box (10-oz) frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 cup uncooked alphabet pasta

In a 4-quart slow cooker or crockpot, combine the meat, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water and dry soup mix; cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.

Turn the temperature setting to high and add the pasta; stirring to mix in well.  Add a little water and/or vegetable broth is soup is too thick.

Replace lid on cooker and cook on high 30 minutes or until vegetables and pasta are tender.
