Fastest Beef Stew

Ok, another non-philosophical one - but i'm thinking there's gotta be another busy youth pastor out there who could use this one. It takes like 10 minutes and my husband loves it.

1 can cream of *something* soup (i've used mushroom, potato, and celery with good result)
1 can whole baby potatoes
1/3 small bag baby carrots
2 frozen hamburger patties
2 packages brown gravy mix
2 cups water
Crock-Pot (I use a medium-sized round one)

Pour the cream of whatever soup into the bottom of the crock pot. (Don't worry about spreading it around.) Then put the hamburger patties in on top of that. Then the potatoes, then the carrots. In a separate dish, mix the brown gravy mix and water, then dump that in on top. This should come pretty close to covering all the ingredients with liquid.

Turn the crock-pot on for 8-10 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high, or some combination of the two (each hour on high counts for 2 on low). Serves 2.
