This was so easy to make. I used a can of golden mushroom soup instead of the water and added some beef stock also. I would add less pepper next time but it was delicious.

This has been a favorite recipe in our house for a few years now. Easy prep and delicious results. However, now that I live a low carb/sugar-free life, I've changed the recipe slightly. I leave out the potatoes, tapioca, and bread but add radishes, xantham gum, and less of the carrots. I also add mushrooms and green beans. Still delicious and you won't miss the higher carbs!

This is an easy way to make stew--I don't even bother to peel the potatoes and they come out just fine. The meat is tender, the veggies all cooked just right. My husband and I both love it. I do cut down on the salt a bit and it still tastes great.

I found this recipe years ago (about 14 years ago) and loved it! My Mom who hated beef stew loved this recipe. It's not a newly created dish but it is a family favorite here!
