If you think stew can be “boring,” you’ll enjoy this easy, flavorful dish. As one reader says, “Very delicious, warming, and tasty. Eaten with warm, crusty bread.” A proven family favorite.

2 pounds lean beef (preferably chuck roast)
2 large onions, cut into wedges
1 pound new potatoes, sliced
1 package (1 pound) baby carrots, cut in half
1-1/2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 cans (11-1/2 ounces each) hot and spicy vegetable juice

Cut beef into 1- to 1-1/2-inch cubes; place in a 4-1/2-quart Dutch oven. Add onions and next seven ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; cover and transfer to oven.

Bake 4 hours at 250 degrees. Do not peek. Do not stir. Serve with cornbread or warm, crusty bread.
