Yes, you can, especially if you're adding vegetables with the meat, because as the meat and vegetables steam they'll give off liquid and will "stew" the meat.

The only hesitation I would have about saying yes would be if the meat in question is very lean, say chicken breasts without skin. Then you might need a little liquid, which you would likely want as a seasoning agent anyway.
