This was different and delicious served over mashed garlic potatoes. We just loved the flavor the cranberries added to this simple stew! I, also, cooked mine in the crockpot after searing the meat, and cooked on low for about 5 hours. The meat was tender and the gravy it all made was perfectly thick for our tastes. It only needed salt and pepper at the table and it was perfect! I will make this again! ZWT9
