Beef stew is one of those hearty, comforting dishes American families love but frequently don't have time to prepare. Our timesaving starter makes it easy to prepare a hearty beef stew-even on the busiest weeknights. We've simmered ripe tomatoes, fire-roasted peppers, chilies, dark beer and other premium ingredients for hours to achieve the depth and complexity of a homemade sauce. For a delicious family-friendly meal, just combine the starter with carrots, potatoes and cubes of browned beef, then simmer in a slow cooker or Dutch oven. 1 lb. 8.5 oz. (makes 6-8 servings) Made in USA.
