Recipe by abloom69

This recipe has been lost for years and I have just found it, my Dad was the cook in the family growing up and my sister and I always loved this simple and delicious stew. Very kid friendly and flexible. Would be great for OAMC( you could use frozen meatballs)and could be adapted to a crockpot, would double or triple easily. Enjoy

Absolutely delicious. Easy to make. I made it in a crockpot and cooked it on high for 5 hours. Thanks for a great recipe.
