    Papa D 1946-2012's Note:

    When the weather turns nippy, warm up your insides with this stew. Very good. Found this on a calendar years ago. Potatoes can be a substitution for turnips. This also can be made in a crock pot, add all ingredients cover and cook on low for 6- 8 hours. Note: The beef base is a concentrated beef stock made by Superior Touch. Its in same location as bouillon cubes and I find it to have better flavor and not as salty.

      OK, I must be doing something wrong because my review didn't show up. I made this exactly as written - including using the better than bullion base. I have trouble rating because I'm not a fan of wine in my cooking, but I wanted to be true to the recipe so I used it. I wasn't wild over the taste (probably because of the wine) but my DS and DD both liked the taste, I will say it was a very hearty stew and perfect to warm you up on a cold day. Made in honor of Papa D for the Papa D Cook-a-thon. We'll miss you!!
