Grandma’s Beef Stew

This is not my Grandma’s recipe, but a favorite recipe of a friend’s Grandma. This is a real old fashioned recipe and a family favorite. Our Grandma’s didn’t have crockpots, so they slow cooked them in the oven. You can make this in the crockpot, just increase the time.


  • 2 pounds stew meat
  • 2 cups cubed carrots
  • 2 cups celery, sliced
  • 4 small onions, quartered
  • 1 slice bread, diced
  • 4 Tablespoons tapioca
  • 1 large can tomatoes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • garlic salt, to taste

Place all ingredients in a large roaster and baked covered @ 250 degrees for 5 hours.

Nani Tip
Put this in the crockpot in the morning and dinner will be ready when you get home.
