Did You Know...
Tapioca's not just for pudding! Tapioca is used to thicken this hearty stew because it doesn't need to be stirred and won't break down during the long baking process.
Success
Use an ovenproof Dutch oven and cover. Check the manufacturer's information of your Dutch oven to be sure. Don't use one with plastic handles on the pot or cover if you're not certain it's ovenproof.
