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.

2 lbs beef stew meat

1 cup water
salt to taste

1/4 tsp Italian seasoning, optional
hot cooked rice or noodles for serving

Sprinkle the stew meat with the salt and pepper; place in slow cooker or crockpot.  Sprinkle the minced garlic over all.

In a mixing bowl combine the mushroom soup, onion soup mix, Italian spice if using, and the water with a wire whisk until smooth; pour over the meat.

Place lid on cooker and cook on 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours until meat is tender and cooked through.
