This stew is awsome! It serves a family of 4 perfectly for dinner. And it goes great with cornbread.I used a family recipe and adjusted it a little to please the whole family.

Nice simple recipe and was glad there was no corn starch or too much of a tomato flavour. Made this vegetarian with portobello mushrooms and veggie stock. Excellent -- just like a 'beef' stew from before I became veg. Added worcestershire sauce and thyme.
