When I was growing up in Ohio, my mother often made this stew for Sunday dinner. She'd put it in the oven before we left for church, and I remember how pleasant it was to come home to such a wonderful aroma! No one ever was late sitting down at the table on those days!


  • 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 6 medium carrots, cut into strips
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 cup thickly sliced celery
  • 1 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 slice bread, crumbled
  • 1 cup water


  1. In large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Spoon into a greased 3-qt. casserole. Cover and bake at 325° for 3-1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
