Oven Baked Beef Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by R.Lynn

I have been making this for years. It comes from Taste of Home. I don't remember the issue but it was quite early. It is also in the 1999 TOH annual cookbook. The aroma while this is baking will drive you insane. This is a great cold weather stew that you will make many times over!

This recipe is a winner. I used flour instead of tapioca. I put a couple of tablespoons of flour in a baggie and coated the beef in the flour then I browned it. I mixed 3 tablespoons of flour into the cold water and stirred it until the lumps were all gone. Then I just mixed all the ingrediens togther and put into a 9 x 13 pan which I had sprayed. I did not used the bread. Family does not like celery cooked so I also omitted that. The flavor of this dish is wonderful. I don't really like beef stew and I loved this. I will be making this again in the near future. Thank you for posting this.
