Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To check for doneness, insert a knife into the potatoes. If it comes out easily, without resistance, the potatoes are done. The beef should be tender and fall apart easily with a fork.
  • tip 2
    This stew freezes beautifully. Double the recipe and freeze half for another meal.
  • tip 3
    Serve with a side salad and a loaf of crusty bread.
