Crockpot Beef Stew (using Cream of Mushrooms)

Continue on with the leftover celery and in an attempt to use my can of family-sized Cream of Mushrooms as a non-soup or non-alfredo sauce. Here is my version of Cream of Mushroom Beef Stew:

1 can of cream of mushroom (family size)
2 lbs of stew meat
1/2 cup of flour
1 pkg onion soup mix
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs black pepper
4 red potatoes (cubed)
2 carrots (peeled and cubed)
4 stalks of celery (chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)

1) Place carrots, potatoes, celery, and onion on the bottom of the crock pot. (You may layer it in that order if you wish)
2) In a bowl, place stew meat and coat with flour
3) Lightly brown all of the flour-coated stew meat in an oiled skillet
4) Place the browned stew meat into the crockpot, on top of the cubed veggies
5) Pour in onion soup mix
6) Top with the cream of mushroom
7) Turn crockpot on high for 5 hours or low for 8 hours
8) Serve over rice

I wasn't sure if Mr. P is going to like it, so I gave him a small bowl. When he went back for a 2nd bowl, I asked if it tasted okay and asked if I make it again would he eat it, he said "I wouldn't go for seconds if I don't like it. I would order pizza otherwise." YAY!! I can make this again!!!
