Skier's Stew Recipe

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
