You only need a few minutes of effortless prep to get a flavorful classic. Use a blender to dissolve the tapioca completely.

How to Make It

1. Place tapioca, sugar, garlic powder, salt, and tomato juice in a blender; process until smooth.

2. Combine onion, celery, carrot, mushrooms, and beef in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker; add juice mixture, stirring well. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or until beef is tender. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
