1 lb. boneless beef chuck pot roast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
4 C. water
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 c. frozen mixed vegetables
2 c. frozen diced hash brown potatoes or 2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped [I did the real deal. very yummy]
1 1-ounce envelope onion soup mix (1/2 of a 2-ounce pkg.) [yes, that's straight from the recipe book... at least they're detailed! haha]
1 tsp. instant beef bouillon granules
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/8 tsp garlic powder
-In a large skillet, brown meat pieces in hot oil. Drain the fat. In a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker, place meat and remaining ingredients. [mine is 6 quarts. still.]

I cooked meat and chopped veggies the night before and refrigerated those pieces. Then, popped it all in the next morning before work. SUPER easy.
