Is there anything I can substitute for tapioca in a recipe?

Have a stew recipe that calls for 4 tbsp. of tapioca, for thickening. Any suggestions?

    Cassava root is a starch so corn starch or Wondra flour will work in it's place

    When your meat is cooked, before adding any liquid, put in 4 Tbs of flour and stir well and brown slightly. Then add liquid, slowly while you stir. Finish as usual.

    You can try corn starch. I like it better than flour because I think it thickens better.
