Now for those who have no clue what "stay in bed" stew is, it is a delicious, hearty beef stew with potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, and peas that cook in a sauce of tomato soup and cream of mushroom soup. To make the stew a little juicier, a can of diced tomatoes are added to the mix. Yum!
Of course this is well worth the 5-hour wait! The stew was yummy as ever! The dumplings (thanks to Bisquick) pair perfectly with the stew because they soak up all of the juice! Delish!!
