Delicious Oven-Baked Beef Stew

“Browned beef cubes cooked with lots of veggies in a delicious thick rich tomato-based sauce, and the oven baking really adds to the flavor --- I use bacon grease to brown the meat but oil will do fine, serve this with cooked noodles and/or with a crusty loaf of bread, to serve as a thick hearty soup add in a little more broth --- this is *very* good! :)”
