Easy Beef Stew

Because of the time this takes to bake (4 hours), stick it in the oven before church. When you return home, you'll be welcomed by a yummy, savory smell, have just enough time to make some mashed potatoes and ... dinner is ready!

2 lbs. beef stew meat
1 med. onion, diced
2 stalks celery, sliced
4 med. carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
fresh, sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 T. sugar
2 t. salt
3/4 c. tomato juice (or V8)
2 T. minute tapioca

Combine all ingredients in 9X13 baking dish and stir gently to combine. COVER TIGHTLY WITH FOIL and bake at 250 degrees for 4 hours. Serve over mashed potatoes (my favorite) for a complete meal. You can also serve it over cooked rice or pasta.
