"When my granddaughter was 3, she had a bear that sang a song about 'root stew'," recalls Alice McCabe of Climax, New York. "She thought he was talking about tree roots, so I took her to the store to buy root veggies, and we made this stew."

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds beef sirloin tip roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 3 celery ribs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed peeled sweet potatoes
  • 3 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 12 wedges
  • 1 cup cubed peeled rutabaga
  • 1 envelope reduced-sodium onion soup mix
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the beef, vegetables, soup mix and seasonings. Seal bag; shake to coat evenly.
  2. Transfer to an oven-safe Dutch oven or a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray (dish will be very full). Pour water over beef mixture.
  3. Cover and bake at 325° for 1 hour. Stir in tomatoes. Bake, uncovered, 30-50 minutes longer or until beef and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
