Recipe by Dave Salch

This is a recipe I created one day when in a real hurray to throw together something for dinner with very little time to do it. The results were surprising! Give it a try and see what you think! What really makes the difference here is hte cast iron dutch oven. It is the absolute best way to cook a stew. If you have never tried a cast iron dutch oven, get one! you will not be disappointed. The results can not be duplicated in any other style of cooking.
