I DISCOVERED this recipe several years ago when we belonged to a newcomers group. It's a real lifesaver when you have company...and when you live in Florida, you have company often!
Put it in the oven, forget it and be gone for the day with your guests. When you return home, fix a salad, warm some bread and dinner will be ready. The men especially love it!

This healthy, hearty stew is one of my husband's favorite meals. I always use fresh mushrooms, and I toss low-sodium bouillon cubes right into the roaster...no dissolving first in liquid. No additional salt is necessary. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania
This recipe is called "Skier's Stew" because you put it in the oven…and head for the slopes! It looks after itself for 5 hours. I like to prepare it two or three times a month in the fall and winter. When I come home after a busy day and get in out of the cold, a good hot dinner is waiting for me! — Traci Gangwer, Denver, Colorado
Think you can't prepare a hot and hearty stew in under 30 minutes? Well you can! This super stew recipe uses frozen vegetables and prepared gravy, plus it cooks on the stove, so you can serve up steaming bowlfuls in no time.

"This is such an easy way to make a wonderful beef stew," beams Doris Sleeth of Naples, Florida. "You don't need to brown the meat first—just combine it with hearty chunks of carrots, potatoes and celery...and let it all cook together in a flavorful gravy. My daughter Karen came up with the recipe for her busy family."
