    Tansy.'s Note:

    A very tasty stew that goes beautifully with rice and a crisp mixed salad. I got the basic recipe from a book purchased from a second hand shop and have adapted it. I sometimes add mushrooms and also serve it with a dollop of sour cream.

      I really enjoyed the cumin flavor in this dish. I served it with mashed potatoes. DH would like it with some traditional stew vegetables like potatoes and carrots.

      This was very easy to make and quite tasty. My husband and 3 year old daughter liked it a lot. My 6 and 5 year old sons were wholly unimpressed (they can be very picky eaters). I thought it was pretty good; as I ate it I actually liked it more and more. The sauce could have been a little thicker; if I make it again I'll add more flour or some cornstarch to it.
      Overall, you can't beat a recipe that has just a few ingredients, is easy to prepare, and tastes good! Thanks for sharing.

      This was a tasty stew thanks Tansy. The vinegar really came through and added a nice and different flavour to it. I'm going to try it with the mushroomas and sour cream next time.
