      yummy! I didnt have cinammon sticks so I used ground, only thing I did differently was to coat the meat with flour and brown it, then I sauted the sweet potato and onion together first also. Warm Pumpkin bread complimented this stew perfectly.

      I tried this and it was great. The only thing I did differently was I coated the meat with a flour/cayenne mixture prior to browning. If possible I would recommend using the cinnamon stick which gives a very different flavor than ground cinnamon.

      The sweet potatos were a nice change from 'regular' stew. My husband doesn't like apricots, so when he got a bit of one he wasn't too please, but he enjoyed it otherwise. I didn't have cinnamon stick, so I just added ground cinnamon instead.
