When I was little one of my favorite stories was The Tawny Scrawny Lion. I loved the family of ten fat rabbits who convinced the Lion to love carrot stew so he wouldn’t eat them! I still remember standing on a kitchen chair helping my Mom cook and acting out the story.

  •  2 lbs. lean  beef stew meat
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2 carrots cut in chunks or a handful of baby ones
  • 1 large onion, cut into chunks or wedges
  • 1 can beef consommé

Place all the ingredients in a covered pot and place in oven.  Set the oven at 300 degrees and leave for five hours.  When it’s finished….stew the easy way!    It’s wonderful with a green salad and crusty bread on a cold day….
