“I love pot roast, but since I live alone, I find it easier to cook stew meat,” Roberta Young writes from San Diego, California. “I cook 3 pounds of lean beef stew meat or a roast I cut up myself…whatever’s on sale. Then I make my recipe for Beef Stew Mix (recipe also in Recipe Finder), divide it up in three containers and freeze. You can alter the seasonings, if you wish.” Roberta uses one portion of the versatile mix to make hearty Vegetable Beef Stew.

"I have made this many, many times from the Beef Stew Mix called for. It is not only handy but tastes good too. Once the mix is made it only takes half an hour to put a home made beef stew and dumplings meal on the table.

Sometimes I add green beans or peas and always a pinch of dried oregano."
