Re-make of Grandma's 5 Hour Stew


2 cans tomato soup (don't add water or milk)
1/2 onion (chopped) (Add more if desired)
1 lb. stew meat
3 stalks of celery (chopped)
4 carrots (chopped)
5 potatoes (chopped & cubed)
1/2 bag frozen peas
Salt & Pepper to taste

Add the uncooked stew meat to the bottom of the crockpot. Then add in the following order:
Chopped onions, chopped carrots, chopped celery, cubed potatoes, 2 cans tomato soup and Salt & pepper to taste. Turn on med or low on your crockpot and let it cook! About 1/2 hour before serving, add the frozen peas. Yum!

My Grandma Briggs was an amazing cook. Although I especially enjoyed her sunday cake and ice cream, her other meals were just as fabulous! She used her pretty pink pot to cook this dish, but I have since updated the recipe with a crockpot. This is an easy peasy dish! Enjoy!
