This is a little different than the stews I could find on Zaar. It is by Philomena Corradeno's Chopping Block with a few small changes by me. Serve with a green salad and some crusty bread to sop up the sauce. If you wish you may thicken the sauce by adding 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water for the final 15 minutes of cooking. I like mine with out the thickening.
