Reviews for Easy Oven Stew
"This recipe has been a family favorite since it was first published in TOH in December 1994! The original directions say to bake at 300F for 4-5 hours, stirring twice. Haven't tried the shorter version. Hopefully it will be just as delicious & tender!"
"This stew is so easy, and a favorite! I use Mexican stewed tomatoes, we like the spice!"
