Beefy Goodness in a Crock Pot

This is my version of Kelly Cooks Best Beef Stew Ever - it really is the best and so easy.  My husband LOVES it and it has become an easy go-to recipe at our house. I usually make it before I go to bed and put it in the fridge when I wake up. We warm it up when we want it during busy weeks.  So not foodie but oh so good. 
Beef Stew

  • about 2 pounds of beef roast cut into cubes
  • 1/2 of a sweet onion
  • 1 leek (if you have it, I didn't this time) it adds that lovely leeky smooth flavor
  • about 12 little carrots
  • 3 or 4 stalks of celery
  • 1 red pepper
  • quart of small yellow potatoes
  • 2 Knorr beef cubes
  • 2 cans of Campbell condensed tomato soup
  • 1 can of Progresso French Onion soup

Layer the ingredients as listed above in the crock pot, starting with the beef cubes on the bottom.
Next add the onions on top.

Then bring on the carrots and top with some red peppers and celery...
Bring on the taters and top off with crumbled bullion cubes...

Dump the tomato soups on top and then top off with the french onion soup...

Put the cover on and cook on low for 8 hours, do not stir...
