When the cool winds of autumn/winter begin to blow, this stew will add a warmth, and wonderful bouquet to Your kitchen and home.I serve homemade biscuits to accompany this hearty, delicious, stew. Works well in a crockpot also. You will not be dissappointed with this one.

Not as easy as I thought it would be because the recipe said everything needed to be cooked and then added to the crockpot. Next time I'm going to just put it in the crockpot raw and cook it longer, I don't see why the veggies need to be cooked first. I bought bread bowl sized rolls at the store bakery, hollowed them out and poured the stew in them. With a salad on the side, very good dinner.
This is a good, hearty stew. Was not difficult at all, and makes at least 8 servings. The vegetables definitely DO NOT need to be cook beforehand, however.
I made this, but substituted 2 tbls. onion powder for the onion, it was awesome, a little complicated to make, but still really good after all the work.
