Top Review by AmyJim

We made this as the entree for our gourmet dinner club that was featuring South African wines with a wine master. Coupled with Rice with Raisins, it was an enormous hit! People asked for seconds and our teenage children devoured any and all leftovers the next day! Extremely easy to prepare. A definite keeper!

  2. Bring liquid to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes. Add peanut butter and blend well. Cook stew another 3 minutes, uncovered to blend.
