Beef and Root Vegetable Stew

Cooking time:  90 minutes with 3 long breaks       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

             The last slow-cooked dinner. If you use very tender beef, it could be done in an hour, or it could be cooked very slowly, on the cook top or in a crock pot, for several hours.  This serves 4... and it freezes well.  

Beef and Root Vegetable Stew

Total time: 90 minutes
