5 Hour Stew - Country Home Creations

5 Hour Stew

  • 1 packet Garden Medley Dip Mix, unprepared
  • 3- to 5- lbs. stew meat (venison works well)
  • 1/2 tsp. each of salt & pepper
  • 4 Tbls. cornstarch, tapioca or all-purpose flour
  • 3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 medium-sized onions, peeled and cut into chunks
  • canned vegetables, optional, any type
  • 1 can (29 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbls. sugar
  • 1/2 cup burgundy or cooking wine, optional

Place meat in bottom of large oven-proof pot. Sprinkle meat with salt & pepper (and wine, if desired). Sprinkle meat with the cornstarch (or tapioca/flour). Add potatoes, carrots, onions and whatever other vegetables you would like. (Canned whole green beans, canned sweet peas and whole mushrooms are a delicious addition.) Sprinkle Garden Medley Dip Mix over vegetables. Pour can of tomato sauce over all and sprinkle with sugar. Cover and bake at 200° to 250° for 5 hours.

The wine helps tenderize inexpensive cuts of meat and also adds flavor. Any alcohol cooks out.
