Easy Oven Beef and Gravy

"This recipe comes from Cookbooks Online. This is a easy and nutritious main meal. You can put it in the oven and go about other things as it fixes itself. My family loves this recipe and perfers that I double it to make more gravy for over noodles and mashed potatoes. I tried this in a crockpot while camping after a reviewer had said they have made it that way. I used frozen stew beef. I let it cook on low 9 hours (by accident we were at a water park) and it turned out great for my family the meat just fell apart. I did need to thicken it with 1/4 cup cold water and 2 tablespons cornstarch."

  1. this works great in a crockpot too!
  2. This was great! I cooked in the oven once and the second time in the crockpot. I added a small can of stem and pieces mushrooms the second time I prepared this meal. I served over mashed potatoes. I added the liquid from the mushrooms. This seemed to take some of the salt from the gravy and it is great also.
  3. Can I have some more of that MOM? This was a great simple recipe! The family loved it...I thought I would have leftovers for work the next day...and NOPE I sure was wrong! The gravy tasted great not what I was expecting! My DS who doesn't like gravy said This was real good! Will make again!
  4. I make this in the crockpot.
  5. Just cooked this for the first time today and will definately have it again. Hubby and I loved it. Beautiful!

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well.

I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons.
