Top Review by Messy44

Made on stove top - very very good. Added green beans in place of the pepper (as I have had a similar stew before and it had beans, which I loved). This is a great no-potato stew. Very simple and no trouble at all to pull together. Will try in crockpot next time. Thanks, Sage. ~messy44
