    ellie_'s Note:

    Hearty winter stew is slow-cooked on the stove but I think it will also work in a crockpot on low increasing the cooking time to at least 8-10 hours. This hearty soup is delicious is hearty whole wheat bread or popovers. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (October 1987)

      I used the crockpot for a wounderful meal. I did find it necessary to cut back on the veggies as the pot was filled to the brim. Instead of cooking the beef and chicken seperate, I used extra lean beef stew meat which was mixed in with the veggies and then placed a couple of leg quarters (skin removed) on top of everything. When the chicken was done, I removed it from the bone and returned it to the pot. I left out the turnip and instead of lima beans, I doubled up on the corn. To complete everything I added about 4 chopped green chili which provided a nice kick. Thanks, I am sure I will prepare this again during the cold months ahead.
