Very good stew and the smell tormented me all day! Had no green peas, so I subbed fresh green beans. Hubby and I will enjoy the leftovers tomorrow! I also doubled the spices and added seasoning salt.

This is a very flavorable stew. I followed the recipe as written and put it in my 6 quart crockpot. I would give this recipe a 5 Star for flavor but a 4 Star for cooking instructions. I had to scoop out liquid twice during cooking and added twice the 4 Tablespoons of Tapioca but after nine hours of cooking it still wasnt the consitency of a stew. I would suggest next time to drain tomatoes or only use one can. My crockpot was pretty full to start which should of given me a clue it would over flow. The red wine added a great flavor to the broth. Served it with Red Lobster Biscuits the recipe also found on Zaar.
