READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by True Texas

From this is a good stew for winter. Go lightly on the cinnamon and cloves they tend to overpower the flavor. I like to slow cook my stews so I cooked a few hours.

fantastic--i think you accidentally left out the canned tomatoes in the ingredients list as you mentioned them in the steps. Anyways, very very good, I added extra cumin to spice it a bit more.
