Stew Meat and Limas - Slow Cooker Recipe

Stew meat and limas is a great comfort food made in the crock pot or slow cooker.  Serve it over mashed potatoes,  noodles or rice to make an easy weeknight meal or main dish for your family.  I have made this dish for years and served to family and friends.  It always goes over big with everyone.  This recipe keeps well for several days refrigerated and could be cut in half if needed. We love it over mashed potatoes.  You can leave out the barley but it really adds to this recipe. You can always use the leftover barley to make our recipe for barley casserole.  The barley casserole is a tradition in our family and we make it for Christmas every year.  It is a wonderful side dish for any meal.

Slow Cooker Stew Meat and Limas

2 lbs. beef stew meat
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 (12 ounce) packages frozen Lima beans
1 (10.5 ounce) can beef gravy
1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
1 cup water
1 package onion soup mix
1/2 cup quick-cooking barley, Optional
1 (14 ounce) can sliced mushrooms

Place stew meat (You can brown the stew meat first if you like or just place it in the crock pot without browning) and limas in crock pot.  Mix all other ingredients together in a mixing bowl and pour into crock pot.  Cook on low for 7 hours or high for 4 hrs. until meat is done.  Enjoy!

Note:  You could also make this on top of the stove in a skillet. Just brown the meat in a little oil first, add remaining ingredients and let simmer on low 30 to 40 minutes until meat is done and juices thicken to desired consistency.
