Country Mouse's Beef Stew

My friend Country Mouse (who prefers not to have an Internet presence) is an awesome down-home country cook. Her food never disappoints and this easy, delicious stew blows away anything I have tried before.

1 package beefy or golden onion soup mix
1 onion cut into pieces
2 lbs Meat (any roast or steak)
Carrot pieces
Potato pieces ( small red or baby Yukon hold up the best)
1-2 stalks celery, chopped

Add water to slow cooker to cover. Cook all day on low.

After above is cooked, remove meat, trim remaining fat and pull apart meat with a fork. Return to slow cooker.
Add:
can of corn
can of green beans
can of diced tomatoes ( any flavor)
small can of tomato sauce

Cook for one additional hour on high.

If you need a thicker sauce, mix a tablespoon of flour with cold water and add to hot mixture or add 1 packet brown gravy mix.
