Changing a recipe from 1 pound to 20 pounds and from oven to nesco, do i need to change cooking time

No peek beef tips and gravy, 1 lb stew meat, 1 can mushroom soup, 1 dry onion soup, 1 dry brown gravy, 1 can mushrooms, 1 and 1/2 cups water. Do i need all the liquid? Usually cook at 350 for 3 hours, how long for 20 pounds, HELP would be appreciated

Following HalfPint, yes use less water/liquid.
And here's an article with many tips about converting from oven to pressure cooker - times, temps, what sorts of food work best.

Is Nesco as slow cooker? If it is, then you will not need nearly as much water. Slow cookers tend to not need a lot of liquid.
Also, will the Nesco hold 20 pounds of stew meat and all the other scaled up ingredients?

I would start by cooking for 6 hours and check to see if the meat is tender enough for you. Keep cooking if needed.
