Stew with a different twist! Although you wouldn't think from reading the ingredients in this recipe that it has a ton of flavor, it does. Be sure and enjoy it over some freshly steamed rice. If you want the sauce a little thicker, you could add a teaspoon or two of cornstarch mixed with a little water to this dish shortly before its finished baking. I think pork or chicken could be used in this dish in place of the beef -- I would imagine the baking time might be shorter.
