Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This stew can be also be prepared in a Dutch oven. Mix all ingredients except carrots and green beans. Cover; bake at 300°F 6 to 7 hours, stirring occasionally, adding carrots and green beans during last hour of bake time. Remove bay leaves before serving.

    Feel free to substitute frozen peas for the green beans--either veggie will work well.
