Fall Into Autum Swap question of the day

Oh how easy to answer the dish cloth swap question today. In fact when thinking of wonderful things to cook for the fall I did not have to search far. Susie sent me the easiest and most delicious recepie for stew....It atkes 5 hours and no peeking but mmmmm is it ever good and the house will smell fantastic. So my contribution today is from Susie my parallel friend.

5 Hour Beef Stew

2 lbs. Stew Beef 3 tbsp tapioca
4 to 6 carrots cut in 2-3 in. slices 1 _ tsp salt
1 -2 medium onions chopped black pepper
4-6 potatoes cut up 1 tbsp sugar
1 cup celery chopped 2 (12 oz) cans V-8 juice
1 green pepper chopped

Place the meat in the center of a prepared Dutch oven. Place the vegetables around the meat. Mix the tapioca, salt, pepper and sugar, then add the V-8 juice. Pour over the other ingredients in Dutch oven. Cover and bake for 5 hours at 250. Do not open during the 5 hours.

For a hot stew, add hot peppers or use spicy V-8 juice.
Serves 8 people.

Wow. This sounds wonderful. I'm curious about the tapioca though. what does that end up like? Does it just help bind everything together? I guess I'll have to try it and see! Thanks for sharing! Your upstream FIA pal

I made the stew yesterday and it came out great. The house smelled wonderful while it was cooking and everyone ate a bowl with rice. Not having to cook the beef ahead of time was a time and pot saver. Thank you for posting your recipie.
