Pichelsteiner One-Pot (German Style Meat Stew)

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

This is a wonderful meat stew using only beef or -- even better half beef and half pork, along with veggies. Posted for ZWT 6/Germany. It's better is reheated the next day, but we also had it the day I made it and froze leftovers for lunches/dinners. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (November 1981)
