An interesting idea for class experiment!
I used to be of the mindset that if cooking a stew for a long time is a good idea, then cooking it even longer is a better idea. Long story short, you definitely can overcook beef stew. But how do you know when it's done? What sort of changes in the meat should you look for? I set up an experiment to figure this out.

The Calgary Civic Symphony will be performing a Christmas Concert at the Jack Singer Concert Hall tomorrow (Dec. 16) at 2:30pm.   We will be playing "Peter and the Wolf" with narration by Mayor Nenshi!  A concert not to be missed!

Chopping, slicing, and dicing can have different results.
