5 hour beef stew


It’s truly the frozen tundra outside. With weather like this all I want to do is curl under a blanket with a cup of tea and read a good book. But the next best thing in my book is coming home to a comforting bowl of beef stew preferably made by someone that has magically cleaned the house along with cooking dinner, but I digress.

My favorite part about this recipe is that it is a one pot, no fuss dinner that turns out every time. You can play with the spices if you like and add Worcester sauce, add 1 or two Bay leaves or whatever strikes your fancy

5 hour beef stew


2 lbs Beef stew meat


2 each of celery and carrots- chopped


1 medium onion- chopped


2-3 medium potatoes- chopped


1 cup fresh green beans or 1 can green beans


1 15 oz can of tomato sauce


1 tsp salt


Pepper to taste


1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)


3 Tablespoons Tapioca


Combine all ingredients into a heavy casserole dish or Dutch oven. Cover and cook for 5 hours at 250 degrees. Don’t stir, monkey with or take it out for the entire cooking time, trust me it will be fine!
