  • 2 lb. stewing beef or chuck roast cut into pieces
  • 1 c. celery chopped about 1 inch
  • 3 medium onions cut into 3/4 inch slices
  • 6 carrots quartered
  • 6 potatoes cut into large pieces (I use a bag of small potatoes, cut into halves)
  • 1 c. V-8 or tomato juice
  • 1 slice bread broken into pieces
  • 3 T. Minute Tapicoa
  • Salt & Pepper generous
  • 1 T. sugar


  1. Mix all together in a very large oven-safe pot or glass baking dish. If I use a glass baking dish, I like it with foil and spray with cooking spray firsBake at 250 degrees for 4 1/2-5 hours. Enjoy!
  2. P.S. The person that I got the recipe from mentioned that you can also do it in the crockpot, but that the oven method tastes better. I've never made it in the crockpot, but you could certainly try it if you want to!
