Four Hour Stew

September!!!  My favorite time of the year.  Temperatures are starting to drop.  The leaves are just starting to change colors by me.  Four Hour Stew is a tasty stew recipe and easy to make as it gets colder outside.  My Aunt Dolores gave my Mother this recipe years ago and it quickly became a family favorite.  The difference with this stew recipe is that you don’t brown the meat or dredge it in flour.  It thickens by using Tapioca.

Place all the ingredients in a large dutch oven or oven roaster. I had crinkle cut carrot slices in the house, so I used those instead of regular carrots.  Bake for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.  Check at 3 hours to see if it is too juicy. If it is, add 1 additional tablespoon of tapioca. If it seems too dry, add additional liquid.

You can also make this in a slow cooker. Cook for 8 hours, (6 on high and 2 hours on low).

We serve with no yolk noodles. Mashed potatoes tend to melt in the juice. I also like to add a little ketchup when serving.
