Grandpa Ben's Beef Stew (Not Cheap, But Really Easy!)

Now that the weather is turning colder, it's nice to come home to a pot of stew.  This is my dad's recipe for a delicious and very easy beef stew that even the kids can make.  It's not cheap (I'll leave any substitutions to you), but it's the quality of the meat that carries the taste.  Also, these specific brands are from Publix just because that's what's convenient to my parents' house :) 

Grandpa Ben's Beef Stew

2 packages Filet of Tenderloin ("Tenderloin Tips"), already cubed (about 1.3 pounds)
2 cans baby carrots ("Le Sueur" or "Del Monte" brands)
2 cans of whole potatoes
1 jar of little onions

Oil spray
Worchestire Sauce

Step 1:  Spray oil into big pot. 

Step 2:  Brown meat.

 Step 3:  Pour in onions with the liquid.

Step 4:  Add carrots with the liquid.

Step 5:  Add potatoes without the liquid.

Step 6:  Slop Worchestire sauce and ketchup into the pot, to taste.

Step 7:  Cook for 3 - 6 hours covered.  It should be hot enough that it bubbles with the lid off but not so hot that it boils with the lid on.  Make sense?

Please let me know how yours turns out!
