Reviews for Hearty Baked Beef Stew
"We have fixed this many times and it's perfect everytime!! We love it!!"
"My husband loved it and it was easy to prepare"
"Good stew; easy to prepare."
"I use can deer meat and it works just as good."
"Wonderful! Very filling, easy to put together. A great meal all by itself."
"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!"
"This recipe is comfort food for sure! Smells so good while baking - one of my family favorites!"
"making this again today"
"Delicious & simple!"
"Thank you for this recipe. It was very good. Because I had 16 oz. of mixed vegetables, I used them instead of the carrots and I diced the meat and potatoes, so everything would cook uniformly. Unfortunately, I forgot the onion, but this was still very good. Thank you again. I hope to see more recipes from you!*Just out of curiosity, what purpose is the bread? I can understand the minute tapioca, just not the bread."
"Delicious. I perfect blend of flavors. The meat is always tender when I make this recipe."
