    Nova Scotia Cook's Note:

    Ah yes, here we go with yet another stew recipe!! Don't recall where I got this recipe, but have been making it for years. It is so darn simple to make and tastes mmmmmm good. The original called for Pillsbury Flaky Biscuits that could be added to the top of the stew but I prefer it without. I much prefer to have homemade buttered tea biscuits with this meal. However, I have added the instructions for the biscuits just in case you might like to try it that way. Hope you like this stew as much as my hubby & I do.

      This stew was very easy to make ~ I used carrots, potatoes, mushrooms and threw in some frozen peas. The meat did not have as much flavor as I had hoped. I ended up just eating the vegetables but DH liked it very much and ate several helpings. I baked my biscuits on the side as suggested. Thanks for posting!
