This was great! Had to reduce the amount of onions and mushrooms as we only had 1 lb of stew meat. Kept the potatoes the same and added garlic. I got the buffalo online and it was really good, much better than beef. Will be using this recipe again.

So easy and tasty! I added pepper and garlic salt on top at the beginning and it didn't need anything once we served it.
