5 Hr Beef Stew

This is a very nice stew that originated before the days of slow cookers so it describes oven cooking at 250 F for 5 hrs. It can also be done in a slow cooker. "Chunk up" 3 medium potatoes, 2 onions and 3 carrots. Place them in a dutch oven or slow cooker along with 1 pound stew meat, 1-14 oz. can diced tomatoes, 1/4 C tapioca and 1/2C red wine. Cover and cook on low( or 250 in the oven) for about 5 hrs or until the meat is very tender. We served it with a crusty bread and a dry red wine....a green salad would be nice as well.
