Don't let the name fool ya, this is super easy and super yummy! I used pork instead of beef so the dish didn't gravy up the way it should have. The lady who gave me the recipe said this works awesome in a crockpot on high for an hour and then low for the 7 hours.
2lbs stew meat, do not brown
14 oz. can stewed tomatoes
6 small carrots cut in chunks (or a bunch of baby carrots)
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp tapioca
1 slice bread broken into pieces (use white bread, wheat doesn't dissolve as well) the bread works with the tapioca to thicken the stew
1 cup water
season to taste (I used Lawrys Seasoning Salt, Pampered Chef Bell Pepper and Herb rub and added minced garlic)
Combine all ingredients. Bake in covered pan at 325 degrees F for 3 hours.
