This is a great "comfort food" meal and fairly easy to throw together. I love meals that I can double and freeze one batch of and this one would be super easy to do just that. Mix it all up and throw it in a freezer bag!
No Peek Stew
(Recipe found at thrivinghomeblog.com via Pinterest)
2 pounds of stew meat
2-3 potatoes, peeled and cut up into chunks
3 large carrots, peeled and cut up into chunks
1 large onion, cut up into chunks
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (15 ounces) can of green beans
1 (15 ounces) can of tomato soup
1 (15 ounces) can of cream of mushroom soup or I use this recipe
Preheat oven to 275. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Add stew meat, potatoes, carrots, and onions. Season with a little pepper and toss together. Dump can of green beans, liquid and all, over the top of meat and vegetables. Lastly, pour the tomato soup and cream of mushroom soup over the top. Gently combine. Tightly cover with foil. Place casserole dish on a cookie sheet with sides, in case of overflow. Bake at 275 degrees for 5 hours. Don't peek! Freezer meal instructions, if you want to freeze...fully cook and cool stew. Place in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container. To reheat, thaw for 24-48 hours in the refrigerator or in the microwave using the defrost setting. Then, warm over low to medium-low heat on the stove, gently stirring occasionally.
