Mary-Ellen's Crockpot Beef Stew

        I am new to the crock pot world.  I never had one before I got one recently as a wedding shower gift.  Since I just recently have a crock pot in my house, I have been seeking out recipes from people who have made crock pot dishes.  My good friend at work, Mary-Ellen has been kind enough to share with me a ton of her crock pot recipes to start out with.   I decided to make her beef stew one, which seemed like an easy one to start with.  It came out so good and the meat was so tender!  I will be sire to try one of her other crock pot recipes and feel free to send any you have over my way as well!!
* 1 1/2-2 pounds of Stew Meat, cut into cubes (Wegmans  of course already has stew meat cut and packaged for you)
* 3-4 carrots cut into chunks
* 4-5 Red potatoes, cut into quarters (I used a whole bag of baby red potatoes and cut them in halves)
* 2 onions chopped in quarters or 1/8ths 
* 1 large 28 oz can of diced tomatoes( I used redpack with garlic and olive oil)
* 2 tsp of chopped garlic
* 2 TBSP of Lemon Juice
* 4 TBSP of Worcestershire Sauce
* Ground black Pepper to Taste
* Turn crock pot on low heat or 200 degrees
* Layer crock pot with:  meat, carrots, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and garlic
* In a small bowl mix lemon juice and Worcestershire and toss it on top of mixture
* Cover and let cook all day (about 6-8 hours) (I gave it a stir every few hours, but you don't have too)
