Winter Beef Party Stew

This is a perfect dish to serve midway through a winter party when your guests are getting a little hungry! You can prepare it in advance, pop it in the oven and it will slowly cook itself to perfection. Serve with tossed salad, crusty bread and red wine.

2 lb. lean beef, cut into

1-inch cubes

28 oz. canned peeled tomatoes

8 oz. frozen green beans

3 large carrots, scraped and thinly sliced

1 large onion, finely chopped

3 celery stalks, trimmed and thinly sliced

6 oz. bean sprouts

3 oz. tapioca

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoonb black pepper

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

6 fl. oz. red wine

2 oz. dried prunes, chopped and stoned

Preheat the oven to cool 300°F (Gas Mark 2, 150°C).

In a large ovenproof casserole, combine all the ingredients. Place the casserole in the oven and cook, without stirring, for 3 to 3 ½ hours or until the meat is very tender when pierced with the point of a sharp knife.

Remove the casserole from the oven, stir the contents and serve the stew at once.
