No need to brown meat first?

Good question, no you do not need to brown the meat first. The oven will do all of the cooking for you. How easy is that?! Enjoy!

Let me tell you...this is an awesome meal...perfect for Sunday lunch...pop in the oven on the way out the door before church....prepare a salad and delish.....enough will not be disappointed!!!

sounds scrumptious!. My mom used to make stew like this sans the tapioca but it was delicious with crusty southern cornbread and iced tea!

why make a comment when you haven't tried eating it

Will this recipe work in a slow cooker?

I would certainly say so. I would brown the beef first then toss it all in on low for 8 hours.
