Lick The Plate Clean Beef (Or Pork!) Stew

Family Favorites

By

My husband's personal favorite, hence the name...

Wonderful served with a basket of warm garlic bread for dipping.

Update: Late last night I took the stew meat out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge over night. It wasn't until I opened the package that I realized that it was PORK stew meat. I went ahead with the recipe anyway, and it was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend trying pork stew meat for a change of pace. The pork was melt in your mouth tender and gave the dish a truly wonderful flavor.

My careless mistake turned into a new family favorite. Enjoy! Peg
