My Mother In Law gave me this recipe years ago. I believe she got it out of a magazine. It is different than any other beef stew out there. The sour cream and nutmeg give it such a wonderful flavor and the smell as it cooks is indescribable. While I am posting the original recipe, which is AMAZING, I make a few changes for calorie reasons. The original below calls for regular sour cream, I always use light sour cream and it comes out great. I also spray PAM in the oven proof dish, and then add 2 teaspoons of oil rather than use a full 2 Tablespoons of oil and the stew is fine.
