Forgotten Beef Stew

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by carol ann in canada

Good oven stew. Also good way to use a cheaper cut of meat.This recipe is one I've used many times and is from another church cookbook.This dish does take quite awhile to cook,3-4 hours, allows the tougher cuts of meat to cook slowly, therefore less chance of being tough.

It was like beef stew without the flavor. It just didn't have much flavor at all. It was easy though.
