5 hour beef stew

beefstew

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!

Enjoy,

Kristin
