Winter Stew
3/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
2 lb. beef for stew, such as beef chuck roast, cut into 1-inch chunks
6 slices Bacon, chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped onions (about 1 large)
3 cups sliced carrots (about 6 medium)
1-1/2 lb. potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks (about 4 cups)
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) beef broth


Pour dressing over meat in large resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; turn to evenly coat meat with dressing. Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in large saucepan on medium heat 5 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon from saucepan; drain drippings.

Add mushrooms and onions to same saucepan; cook on medium-high heat 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Remove meat from marinade; discard marinade.

Add meat, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, broth and bacon to saucepan; stir. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 1 hour 15 minutes. Uncover; simmer an additional 15 minutes or until meat is cooked through and sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally.
