I loved this dish. It fit really well with my low carb diet and was delicious. The flavors were unusual compared to my usual fare, but I really loved the combination. I used a red pepper instead of a green because that is what I had on hand (and I loved the red pepper in this) and I left out the cornstarch because I felt the stew was thick enough already for my tastes. Thanks so much for this recipe!
Thanks for a really easy dinner for when hubby got home from a long hard day. Will be making it again thats for sure. Thanks Ailsa
