Delicious and hearty stew. Goes great with a caesar salad and fresh baked bread. If not eaten within several hours of being made the stew will darken to a muddy brown as the mushrooms, especially the portobellos, loose their juices. The color change really isn't very attractive, but if you don't mind it, the stew does reheat well. It will retain it's flavor after being stored for up to 6 months in an airtight container in the freezer.
