Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of 2 lb of stew meat, you can purchase a 2 1/2- to 3-lb beef chuck roast, and cut it yourself. Trim off the fat, and cut into 2-inch pieces. You should end up with about 2 lb meat.
  • tip 2
    Top with chopped fresh parsley for a pretty, fresh garnish.
