Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I created this recipe based on a description of a dish my husband described to me--that his grandmother made when he was a child. I've made many different verisons of my basic recipe over the years. Using Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onions really cut my prep time! The whole family loves this dish--including my grandkids! I usually make a loaf of bread in the breadmaker when any of them join us for dinner. The aroma of this stew simmering on the stove is SO inviting! Hard to believe it is so easy to make!
