Mitzi Sentiff of Annapolis, Maryland uses a packaged pot roast dinner jazzed up with a few additional ingredients to give it that slow-cooked flavor. “You might think this is too good to be true, but believe it,” writes Mitzi. “Serve it with a salad or veggie side dish and dinner rolls for a complete and delicious meal.”

"beef stew is not normally my favourite, but this one turns out beautifully. It's one we'll make many more times and we'll be keeping the recipe."
