Oven Baked Stew

One of my favorite food bloggers lately has been  I have made several of her recipes and have loved them all.  My friend Laura told me she made this Oven Baked Stew last week and it was a hit with her whole family and so good.  I knew I had to try it this week.  We had it for dinner tonight and it was ah-mazing!

It was easy and so delicious.  Definitely going in the dinner rotation.

Oven Baked Stew 

1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 lbs lean beef stew meat cut into bite size pieces.
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
6 boiling onions or regular onions cut into 2 inch chunks
6 carrots cut into 1 inch piece (or baby carrots can be used)
1 (14.5 ounce) can cream of celery soup
1/2 cup ketchup

- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- In a large ziploc bag combine onion soup mix, salt, paprika, and stew meat.  Shake until well coated.  Place seasoned meat in a covered baking dish.
- Arrange potatoes, onions, and carrots on top of meat.
- In a small bowl combine cream of celery and ketchup.  Pour mixture over meat and vegetables (I know it sounds weird but it is so good).
- Cover and bake for 2 hours @ 325 degrees. Garbish with parsley if desired.

- Slow cooker instructions: prepare as directed above but cook in slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours or until potatoes are fork tender.
