The easy stew recipe I use is
1 lb of stewing beef
1 cup of carrots
1 large onion
3 large potatoes
2 stalks of celery
1 can of mushroom soup
750ml of garden cocktail or tomato juice
(I have also just used 900ml can of diced tomatoes but you do need to add a little more seasoning like italian spice and garlic)

Put raw stewing beef in the bottom of a very big roasting pan or glass dish. Add all clean and chopped veggies on top.  Mix your 2 remaining ingredients together and pour over veggies.  add 1 tsp of pepper and cover with aluminum foil.  Bake at 275 for 4 hours.  It always turns out good.  I make this after we have a roast beef meal.  And put all the leftover meat, gravy and veggies in it. This meal can be froze after it is made to pull out for a quick lunch to take to work.  I have also pureed it for baby food and froze in ice cube trays for easy meals.   So another idea I had would be if you cooked your beef in a frying pan and let it cool you could mix this meal up and freeze it uncooked.  Then you could take it out of the freezer the night before you wanted to eat it and put it in a crock pot in the morning. cook on low for 8 hours.  I haven't tried it, but I bet it would work.  Have a nice loaf of bread ready.  Eat and Enjoy!
