I am cooking beef stew tonight with a lot of ingredients in it and the recipe says that I need to cook the stew in my oven with the lid on for 3.5 hours. After the first hour, I took the lid off and forgot to put it back on....... for like an hour. Then I put the lid back on and cooked for another 1.5 hours. Have a ruined the stew at all?
