Campbell’s Chunky Slow Cooker Stew Recipe!

Growing up as a kid whenever I felt down or sick, mom always made homemade stew.  Now that I’m older and my own kids get a fever or chill or simply want something hearty to eat. It’s my turn to do my own take on what tastes like home.  I will admit I cheat when making this slow cooker recipe. Campbell’s Chunky Slow Cooker Stew.

Campbell's Chunky Slow Cooker Stew

  • 4 large cans of Campbell's Chunky Beef Stew with Country Vegetables
  • 5 large Russet Potatoes
  • 5 large carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 lb ground lean beef
  • Beef stock
  1. Cut up carrots, onions, celery and add to crock pot
  2. Brown lean ground beef add
  3. Open 4 cans of soup
  4. Add 2 cans of water
  5. After 2 hours of cooking on high – add barley and beef stock
  6. Cook on high for 3 hours minimum before serving
Let stew stand for 1/2 hour before serving. Make sure you turn it down to warm.

I like using Campbell’s Chunky Soup as a base for my stew because the flavors are so amazing. Adding your own ingredients to it also spices things up. I find adding hamburger makes it meaty which my kids love. But you can also use stew beef, or swap soups and do a chicken.
