Nana’s Beef Stew

Our oldest has been asking for beef stew of late (he loves the beef stew at school), so I finally got around to asking Nana for her recipe.  It tasted just like I remember…tasty warm comfort food.  I used the crock pot because I didn’t have 5 hours to babysit my oven.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 lb. beef stew meat
  • 2 TBSP minute Tapioca
  • 6 carrots, cut
  • 1 c. celery, chopped
  • 1 8 oz. can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. fresh bread crumbs
  • 2-3 potatoes, chopped in 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 c. peas

Directions:

  1. Oven directions: Preheat oven to 250F.  Mix everything except for the peas in a dutch oven.  Cover and cook for 5 hours.  In the last 20 minutes add the peas.
  2. Crock Pot directions: Mix everything except for the peas in a crock pot.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours, or until meat is fork tender.  In the last 20 minutes add the peas.
