Layered One Dish Supper

This one dish meal is perfect for a cold winter night and can be made in a slow cooker if you prefer. Allow at least 3 hours for baking time if cooking in the oven and 7-8 hours if cooking in a slow cooker on high.

Layered One Dish Casserole


Start with:

  • 2 lbs beef, cubed
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 4-6 potatoes
  • 1 lg onion
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 (10 oz) cans of tomato soup
  • 1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 C water (not pictured)
  • salt and pepper to taste (not pictured)

Chop the celery:


Then chop the carrots:

The potatoes will start to brown if they sit too long before cooking, so I peel and chop them next to last.


Onions make me cry, so I chop them last whenever possible.

Place the beef in the casserole dish, then layer the vegetables in the pan over the beef, onions first, then celery.

Add the potatoes:

Layer the carrots on top of the potatoes. In a bowl, mix the 3 cans of soup with 2 cups of water and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the vegetables.

Cover and bake at 375°F for 2-3 hours (or 6-7 hours on low in a slow cooker) until vegetables are tender.

Serve immediately with a green salad.

Doesn’t that look yummy? Just looking at it warms my chilled bones. Enjoy!
