Aunt Bette's 5-Hour Oven Stew is one of our family's favorite meals. The aroma that fills the house is wonderful, for starters. The recipe is also easy, and it brings the family to the table for sure; especially Kyle. He has a stew "ritual" that makes him almost giddy to think about. As you can see from the pics, it is very serious business:
1st, cut the end off of the French bread loaf (ends are reserved for Kyle, if one values his/her knuckles.)Next, hollow out the core, (using the innards as an appetizer, of course.)Then, stuff the insides with beef, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.Top with a little stew gravy.Inhale.Belly full, Kyle turns his attention to Grandma4444, who begins her story.... "Well, I'll have you know...."
