Mom's Beef Stew

"My Mom makes this easy, beefy stew and my Husband and I love it.  It combines a store-bought seasoning packet, stew meat and fresh vegetables and the best part is that it cooks in the slow cooker so dinner can be cooking while you go about your busy day."

1 packet of McCormick Slow Cookers Hearty Beef Stew Mix
2 pounds stew meat, cut into 1-inch pieces
5  cups of cut-up fresh vegetables (My Mom uses a combination of fresh sliced mushrooms, chopped onions and sliced carrots.)
1-1/3 cups water

Place stew meat and vegetables in slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Mix seasoning packet with water and pour over beef and vegetables.  Stir well.  Cook on low for 8 hours.

TIP:  We love to serve this stew over mashed potatoes.  It's also great with french bread.
