Perfect for our family! I used Italian brown mushrooms and I added pre-cooked stew meat. Bob's stew is awesome!
I made this today for Photo Swap. I used baby portabellos, (or Italian brown mushrooms, they're "meatier" than the whites we think), and we snacked on them right out of the bowl this afternoon! My husband asked me to pour the rest into a beef stew, and that sounds like a great idea to me! We loved the unique taste of the fennel seeds, too. Our house smelled heavenly! This would go well on steaks, but chicken breasts would be great, too. Heck this stuff would go with just about any meat, and it's darn good all by itself! Next time I might thicken it just a bit if not serving with rice or potatoes, but it's not neccessary at all. YUM. Thanks, Bergy!
