This is extra specially good! The combination of herbs makes for a fragrant, but not overstated stew. I halved the recipe and used a fresh tomato, rather than canned ones. Other than that, I followed the recipe faithfully. It does take concentration to follow all the steps. At one point, I realized I had forgotten to add the cayenne pepper, but it was not too late. I used pork, and am very happy with it. Thank you very much for sharing this excellent recipe with us.
