Crock Pot Beef Stew

3 lbs Stew Beef
1 large bag of baby carrots (already peeled)
1 large Onion Chopped
5 stalks of celery roughly chopped
4 Cans of whole potatoes drained ( cut the larger ones in half)
1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 15oz can of chopped tomatoes
1 jar or can of beef gravy
1 package of McCormicks Beef Stew Seasoning
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Early in the day, slightly brown the beef cubes in about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil , just enough to sear the juices in. Put in crock pot, Then add all of the other ingredients stirring everything around so its mixed nicely. Put lid on the crock pot and cook on low 8 hours.
Serve with a nice beer bread, or biscuits for a hearty meal.

There is nothing so nice as coming home after working in the office all day to the smell of something so home made. This is truly comfort food. Enjoy!
