  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink and drain. Personally I keep frozen cooked hamburger in my freezer which makes this an even quicker recipe for me to put together.
  2. In a crock pot, combine potatoes, carrots, water, onion soup mix, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder and pepper.
  3. Stir in the cooked beef.
  4. Cover and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  5. Stir in tomato soup and tomato paste.
  6. Cover and cook for 1 hour longer or until heated through.

I made this today & it is gone already! I cut back on the tomato paste & condensed soup, as we do not like "tomato-ey" stews. I also added some beef stock and later added some macaroni. I did pre-boil my carrots so that they would be more tender. I made seasoned meatballs with the ground beef and fried them a bit prior to mixing it all in the slow cooker. Delicious & easy. Thank you for posting.

We really liked it! I increased the meat by substituting the ground beef with 3/4 lb. ground turkey and 3/4 lb. ground sirloin to keep it lower in fat. I combined everything and cooked it on low for 10 hours and it came out wonderful. I served this with crescent rolls and a jello salad. This is a great family meal - perfect for weeknights. I will definitely be making again during the cold winter months. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag.

A great tasting, easy to make stew/soup. I replaced the tomato soup and paste with a good tomato sauce because I'm not a tomato soup fan. I cooked the first step for 4 1/2 hrs on high and the second for 2 1/4 hrs still on high. The potatoes were firm but well cooked and tender the carrots were still *quite* firm and I used small baby carrots cut in half. I think I'll pre-cook them a bit next time so they will be a bit more tender. DH loved the flavor. I made a 1/2 recipe and I would say that it made 4 servings even though DH and I aren't big portion eaters. If you have men with hearty appetites or teens allow for that. Thanks Bonette, I love your crock pot dishes :D.
