I love this recipe. It was easy, as stew recipes go, and the result was great! My wife loved it. :-) The tip for peeling the pearl onions was very helpful, as well. I'm filing this recipe for the future . . . I'll definitely make it again and again. One thing I might add next time is celery. I don't know if it will add anything but I see a lot of recipes that include celery so I want to see if it makes a difference. Thanks a lot for sharing this great recipe!!
