Simplify this classic beef and mushroom stew by using canned soup for the gravy and cooking it in a slow cooker.
In a 3-1/2- to 6-quart electric crockery cooker stir together the soup, burgundy, tapioca , thyme, and pepper. Add the carrots and onion. Top with the stew meat and mushrooms.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. Serve over hot cooked noodles. Makes 6 servings.
