Fabulous stew! Packed with flavour and interest. I made the recipe exactly as stated and especially loved the savoury added to it. Warmed up the following day made it even more delish. I'll definitely make this stew again and again. My family just loved it! Served it with a warmed up crusty loaf and yummers scooping up all the deliicious juices.
MAde for PAC and very muched enjoyed this stew. I would not normally add in bacon drippings but made bacon for weekend breakfast so saved it. I followed the directions exactly as stated and added in the optional corn and wine. Used a merlot. Cooked this in my 6 qt cast iron DO and just loved it! The whole cottage smelled delicious and as it was FREEZING it was a great meal to have. DS and his g/f said they smelled it when they came up the drive. :-) as did the neighbors who came a calling. Served with a crusty artisian bread Our Daily Bread in a Crock - Weekly Make and Bake Rustic Bread and garlic butter and oh HEAVEN in a bowl.Thank you baby!
