This definitely is a very unique and tasty stew. Sometimes you really need to take a culinary leap outside the box and try something, that to you, may not seem to fit together -- and you just might find that you are pleasantly surprised. We definitely were and the result was a really nice blend of flavors that complimented each other really well. Thanks for posting this recipe. I will certainly make it again.
