French pork cassoulet - very easy and yummy.

Any kind of pork chop or steak, doesn't matter. Brown in tiny bit of oil. Salt & lots of pepper.
Slice a big onion and half a green pepper. Put these over pork.
Scrape up bottom, pour over a cup or two of water or stock, put on lid. Simmer 30 min.
Add carrot slices and potato slices, keep enough liquid in pan so things don't get dry. Simmer another 30-45 min.
Thicken liquid if you want gravy, don't if you like "au juice."
That's it!

Beef stew is very easy. I use the beef stew seasoning packet and follow the directions on the back. Add whatever veggies you like but do not buy the pre-cubed stew meat, it tends to be tough. Buy a cut of meat that has more marbling and cut it into stew cubes yourself, like a roast you use for pot roast.

I never buy those packet/helper type things.

So full of chemicals, they actually frighten me. Although I long to, like the olden days before anyone knew any of this stuff.

I will only use herbs spices and vegetables for flavoring. I know I know the spices are processed - but at least they grew out of the ground somewhere!

I make a homestyle stew like my mother did, which has only pepper and salt as flavoring, meat, carrots, potatoes and onions.

Its absolutely delicious.

Beef stew and chicken stew are my two main stews. I've never used a seasoning packet although they might be good.

I only do beef stews - and those maybe twice a year, tops. The seasoning packets are pretty good - I've used them in the past, but that was when I didn't yet have a spice cabinet to pull from (my very first apartment comes to mind). When you don't have the money to go and buy several different spices at once, the seasoning packets do come in very handy. My son uses them for the same reason - he isn't putting down any roots yet and doesn't have a "settled" kitchen so to speak - he's somewhat living out of boxes as he's transferring to Hawaii in a month, month and a half and he has to move stuff yet again. He isn't going to get all those types of things until he was sure where he'd be for awhile.

If you like curry, most of the baked curries can be adapted to the crock pot.

Add a slug of red wine to any beef stew.
