Five Hour Beef Stew

A hot bowl of stew with some cornbread muffins on a cold winter day---YUM!

Five Hour Beef Stew
1 1/2 lbs. stew meat
5 medium potatoes, cut-up
2 c. carrots-cut up
1 c. onion
1 c. celery
2 (14 1/2oz.) can stewed tomatoes
2 T quick cooking tapioca
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1/8 t pepper

Combine all ingredients in large bowl.  Mix gently.  Tun into a greased 3 qt. casserole, cover and bake at 275 for 5 hours.  Serves 6  (I have used pork  because that's what we have.  When I did that I also added a beef gravy packet. You couldn't tell it wasn't beef!)

Oh yes! That sounds perfect for a winter's night. And I love that you can make it so far ahead and just pop it in the oven.

Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend...

What a great idea to add tapioca! That's got to make a great texture!

It looks great and sounds wonderful on a cold snowy night.
