On the bottom of the crock, first throw in a bag of baby carrots. Then throw in some peeled and cubed up potatoes. On top of the vegetables add some cubed beef (stew meat). Then in a separate bowl mix in one can of cream of mushroom soup and an envelope of dry onion soup mix. Pour over meat. Cook all day on low (8+ hours) until veggies are tender. Sometimes I serve this over noodles or add sour cream to it for a different flavor.
1-1/2 pounds beef chuck roast, cut in 2 inch cubes

I remember my mother using one of those big square Corning Ware baking dishes with the glass top to roast something in the gas oven on very very low. She would go to work, we kids would go to school and the roast was absolutely delicious that night. This is for anybody who does not have a crock pot. You can get them pretty cheap everywhere.
