What's For Dinner: French Stew
1.5 pounds stewing beef
1 onion, sliced thin
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
2 T tapioca (you can use instant but I prefer the pudding kind...makes a thicker gravy)
2 C beef broth (or, one can plus some water to make 2 C)
Layer all and cook at 300 degrees (yes, that low!) for 3-4 hours. I use a covered casserole to keep everything from drying out. Leave the house and come back when it's almost done, otherwise the smell will tempt you to eat it too soon.
Serve with rice -- serves 4.
