  • Crockpot Stew-Diane M.


    1 1/2lbs stew meat or meat that has been cut for stir fry
    4-5 10oz cans of Cream of mushroom soup(IC friendly)
    1 4oz can of mushrooms
    1/8 of a teaspoon ground ginger(if can tolerate)
    5-6 cloves of garlic coarsely chopped
    Approx. 1/2 teaspoon oregano ( or to taste)
    Approx. 1/2 teaspoon basil ( or to taste)
    Garlic powder to taste
    Half cup water
    Combine all ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours or more or if you are in a rush cook on high for four to five hours. The gravy will usually be a little thin. If you would like it thicker add a little cornstarch paste, flour or small pearl tapioca when you combine the ingredients. Serve over egg noodles or rice. For a little different taste use chicken instead of beef. Just substitute 4-5 chicken breasts in place of the stew meat. This version tends to go better with rice. Also you can add potatoes, carrots and experiment with the seasonings.

    Serves up to 5-6 people.

      Thanks for the recipe. Its always great to have quick, fresh crock-pot recipes. Someone here shared their recipe for Crock-pot chicken artichoke and rice. The crock-pot is cooking as I type. I will have a fresh, safe, tasty and nutritious meal in about three hours!

        I love crock-pot recipes! It is so good, especially this time of year! I have also made chicken noodle soup. I buy a Marie Callender frozen noodle for it that I put in for the last half hour or so. Yummmm
