    SusieQusie's Note:

    My random bouts of laziness occasionally lead to some real gems in the kitchen. We thought this was one of them. I like tomato based beef stews but get tired of them. Then I have to contend with the leftovers. Using what was in my pantry, freezer and fridge, Meal #1 produced a rich and flavorful brown-gravy type stew with very little effort and included my lazy-woman plan to use up the leftovers - Meal #2. ;-) As written, the *two* of us dined well *twice* with nothing left except satisfied bellies and empty plates.
