Directions Step-By-Step

Turn crockpot to cooking 5-6 hours or on high for 3 then low for another 3 hours.
In a medium size frying pan, add olive oil, heat oils then add pork chunks, salt and pepper, and garlic. Cook on low- medium until browned.
In crock pot, add onion dry soup mix, cream of chicken, and tomato soup. Mix well. Add carrots, mushrooms, celery, mixed vegetables, and potatoes.
After meat is browned, dump into crock pot. Pour the water into the frying pan (this gets the remaining flavors from the meat) and heat to boiling, adding chicken base. Once base is dissolved, pour water mixture into crockpot.
Mix all ingredients. Cover and let cook. Secret to a crockpot... keep the lid closed. Enjoy!
