Wow - this was great! I made this exactly as posted, except I did add some salt, which really brought out all the other flavors. There's a lot going on in this stew, but it all works together marvelously. I did need to cook this about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing this very flavorful stew. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
