Aunt Peg's Wyoming Stew

We're not sure why this recipe is called her "Wyoming" stew, but we do know its fantastic!
This recipe is so old that when it was originally used there were no such things as slow cookers/crock pots... it was cooked on your stove for 6-7 hours, watching and stirring often.

WYOMING STEW
2 lbs. stew meat
2-15oz. cans green beans, with juice
(I use frozen green beans and just omit the liquid)
1 Qt. stewed tomatoes
2 medium onions, chopped
5 carrots, peeled and diced
4 potatoes, peeled & cubed
5 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 c, quick cooking tapioca
1 c. water
1 tsp. garlic powder 
(or other seasonings you like)
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Place all ingredients in a 5-6 qt. slow cooker, and cook on low 6-8 hours.
This is a super easy recipe, that you can easily adapt to your family's taste by adding additional vegetables, or seasonings.
