Not all stews need to be time-consuming to prepare. A nontraditional stew with chunks of smoked sausage, both cooks and develops its flavor quickly. This is also the kind of recipe that can be prepared without bringing a load of groceries home. Most of the ingredients are pantry shelf staples and everyday vegetables.

This turned out great, even though I had to make a couple of adjustments. I didn't have beef broth so used 2 packets of beef flavoring from ramen noodles (really) & water. Didn't have bay leaf so used fresh thyme. Added small can of mushrooms. All that and still tasted great and was super easy. Potaotes took 30 minutes to cook.
