For variety, replace the peas and onions with mushrooms (6 to 8 large, sliced) or celery (2 or 3 stalks, sliced).
Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 5 hours Coat cooker with cooking spray. Add meat, potatoes, carrots, and peas and onions. Combine onion soup, water, and Worcestershire sauce and pour into cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 hours or until meat and vegetables are just tender. Increase heat to high. (Out all day? Set the cooker's timer for 4 1/2 hours; increase the temp when you get home.) Add cornstarch-and-water mixture, stir, cover, and cook for 30 minutes, or until gravy thickens. How kids can help: Measure ingredients, add to cooker; mix cornstarch and water.
