My husband and daughter both scarfed this stew up! Very tasty. Love the potato, carrot, green beans and tomato taste! Thanks for posting this one!

I just made this for supper and it was really tasty. Just the perfect combination of everything. I used fresh yellow beans because I had them on hand, but they blended in well. I recommend this recipe to anyone who has fussy eaters as kids are fussy, but they actually liked this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

This was real comfort food! I didn't add the tomatoes or shape the meat into balls but kept the rest basically the same and it turned out to be a hit with the men folk. Thanks.
