Chilly weekend, grandkids over, we all need to sew, embroider and crochet, so..time for beef stew..
OVEN (OR CROCKPOT) BEEF STEW:
3 lbs stew meat (I usually buy a roast and cube it up, discarding any sinewy or fatty stuff.)
1 cup chopped celery
1 med onion, chopped
3 cleaned and chopped carrots
4 medium potatoes cut in chunks
1 can beef bouillon soup
1 can Golden Mushroom soup-Campbells
1 can water
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup quick tapioca
salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a roaster, cover, or crockpot, stir together to incorporate. Bake at 250 degrees for 5-6 hours or on high for 8 hours in crockpot. Do not peek.
