2+2+2: The Bestest Sunday Dinner with the Weirdest Name

2+2+2 is our favorite Sunday dinner.  And it only has three ingredients. You really can’t beat that!

Prep Time: 10 min. (plus rice-cooking time)
Cook Time: Approx. 5 hours
Serves: 6


  •  2 lb. beef stew cubes (Wal-Mart stew cubes are gross — do Kroger)
  •  2 onions, chopped (or you can be smart and use frozen onions!)
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup


Lightly grease a big Corning Ware dish.  Layer 1 lb. meat, onion, and 1 can soup; repeat.  Cover and cook at 250 for 5 hours.  Serve over rice or noodles.

I like to put this together Saturday night and pop it in the fridge.  Sunday morning I stumble out of bed at 6:30 or 7:00, stick this in the oven, go back to sleep until church time, and then it’s ready when we get home at 11:30!

You could make this in the crock pot instead, but we’ve always used the oven and the Corning Ware.

About Charity

I have an inexcusable number of cookbooks (and like to experiment with them), have worked in architectural antiques, and have been sewing most of my life. I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Apparel, Merchandising, & Design from Iowa State University. Doing household things (except for cleaning!) and hunting for antiques are my favorite pastimes.

    Charity, you can use Lipton dry onion soup instead of fresh onions and do it at 350 for 2- 2 1/2 hrs. or until meat is tender.
