Not a lot of trouble.
Pull out the cauldron and light the fire for a frightfully good beef stew. If your cauldron is out of commission, a crock pot is a good replacement. This is an easy meal to prepare, and it is especially welcome on cool, autumn evenings.
2 lbs. boneless beef stew meat, cut in 1 ½ in. cubes
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. Lipton’s beefy onion soup mix
1-2 c. water
1 pkg. or jar sliced mushrooms
Combine soup, soup mix, and water in a bowl until smooth (a whisk helps). Add beef and mushrooms, then mix to coat. Pour mixture into a crock pot and cook 6 to 8 hours on low. The dish can also be baked in a casserole dish for 3 hours at 350 degrees. The stew can be served with noodles or rice. Add a green or fruit salad or a vegetable to complete the meal.
