Whole family loved this, even my picky ten year old; he practically inhaled it! I took several modifications from previous reviews. Left out the celery & carrots, used 4 palm sized potatoes. Browned the stew beef in a dry non-stick fry pan after tossing with flour, onion powder and garlic powder in a ziplock. Removed beef from pan and placed in a greased 9x13 baking dish as directed. Then took advice from a great review and dissolved a beef boullion cube in boiling water, added to the pan in order to loosen all of the bits from the pan and poured it over the beef. Also, tomatoes add lovely color and taste, but I think next time I will use crushed tomatoes since 1 kid "thinks" he hates them. Threw two slices of bread in there and instead of tapioca blended 3Tbs cornstarch and cold water. Covered with foil, cooked 2 hours, or actually, after 1.5 hours, I turned the oven down to 275 and cooked an extra 2.5 hours (had to let the kids enjoy the blizzard!) Came out delicious. Only problem....not enough leftovers!
